Aroma of rubber and minerals, pours a clear orange color with a thin white head. Tastes way better than it smells, it is a complex taste of caramel, resin, tropical fruit and hops, a dry mouth feel with a chalky mineral finish. DialSquare (5068) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2016

Clean, green and very zingy on the nose. The hop is so sharp it’s almost like green onion. The beer is big and juicy in the mouth. Smooth and orangey with a long aftertaste and hefty bitterness. Tight carb. Surprisingly light. superspak (5688) - Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2016
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 5/4/2017. Pours fairly crystal clear deep gold/light amber color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, papaya, lemon, orange zest, light pepper, pine, honey, light caramel, lightly toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity and balance of bright/juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, papaya, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, honey, light caramel, lightly toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus rind/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, papaya, lemon/orange rind, pepper, pine, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of bright/juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and fairly creamy/grainy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 8%. Overall this is an incredible DIPA! All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of bright/juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
