3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Pizzeria Paradiso, Washington, D.C. Typical burnt orange body, off-white head for DIPA. But this is one of the better ones. A nice citrus and bitter hop flavor powered by a blanaced malt background.
Can: (label reads 8.9%....but doesn't mention being the double dry-hopped version...so I'll put it here.)
Cloudy and particulate-laden light yellow with a thick slightly off-white head.
Nice orange/tangerine aroma.
Taste is piney, grapefruit-peel, orange malt.
Good, steady bittering......a very smooth and soft 2IPA. shrubber85 (11609) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 28, 2017

Review from notes, Sample at The Microbrew Invitational 6/3/2017
Hazy yellow, Earthy spicy grassy citrus. jgb9348 (6474) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 17, 2017
Nice hazy golden and light copper coloured body with a nice, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of super piney and resinous, very bitter hops with a lot of grass and herbal elements at play, along with a touch of medicinal, bitter scents. Medium-bodied; Extremely bitter, pungent flavour with a lot of very dry, herbal hop flavours along with a grassy, floral bite that lasts for quite a while and is purely one-dimensional. Some malt comes later on with a good balance, but absolutely no sweetness or complexity - this is just about the grassy, bitter hops with dry flavours all around and no depth. Aftertaste shows a good balance, but just very bitter and dry, with almost a pepper like finish with no sweetness, but there is also not much alcohol showing, either. Overall, a decent Imperial IPA that borders on being a traditional IPA, that shows a dry character and a distinct hop bite, but decidedly shows not much else. Nice to try and at least something different from an Imperial IPA! I sampled this sixteen ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 31-May-2017 for US$4,36, sampled at home in Washington just two weeks later on 16-June-2017. sloth (2936) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAY 23, 2017
Medium sized white head with very good retention and a spotty lace. Murky, chunky gold appearence. Nose is juicy, citrus and a hint dank, fruity, bit tropical. Med/full bodied, citrus bite, prickly soft carbonation, tangy. Really dry malts are paved over by the citrusy, somewhat resiny hops, citrus juicy goodness, bit of leaf, pissy and a strong bitterness in the long dry finish makes it like old school meets new school. Ballsy brew gents. Nicely played. Me likes. 16oz cans from statelineliquors.

Can. Pours hazy yellow with a rocky, 2-finger, white, fully-lasting head that leaves excellent. Medium bitter, citrus, brown sugar and caramel nose and caramel flavor, heavy sweet and medium bitter tastes, thin texture, medium body and a finish of medium duration. Not well balanced.

Bue à la pression. Blonde dorée. Nez très aromatique (agrumes). Légèrement sucrée, bien fruitée et aromatique au palais, amertume moyenne. Finale longue. ben4321 (6734) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 31, 2017
Can from Milk and Hops. Mostly clear golden-orange with a white head and coating, spotty lacework. Orange, lemon, and grapefruit. Pine, catty hops, and a little onion. Very clean flavor-wise, with strong maltiness up-front, and a crisp, bitter close. Crisp and dry mouthfeel. Soft carbonation, finishes with a tingle on the tongue. Nicely done. jcos (1855) - Maryland, USA - JAN 28, 2017
Can 1/28. Pours a semi clear orange with light white head. Aroma is of light citrus. Medium bitterness, grapefruit, strong malt backbone. Sticky on the tongue, lingering aftertaste. Good. jefcon (1935) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2017
A bitter beer in a good shaker. Light and lively, pinches the palate. Plenty of citrus and pine.
