As good as it gets for a west coast style DIPA. Pours lighter in color than you’d expect. Easy drinkability. A piney/hopped up Orange Julius! Emeister84 (2505) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 22, 2017
Fruity aromas, tropical, orangey. Slightly hazy orange with a fairly lasting white head. Juicy, pretty well balanced. Medium-full bodied. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a hazy gold color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that had a decent lace after dissipation.
The aroma had some citrus sweet and bitter components, smooth sweet tropical glossing, clean malt, some bitter pine and a light floral pillowy smooth hoppiness.
The flavor was bittersweet and pulling the tropical and citrus tastes into the blend pretty nice. Aftertaste blended well between the malts and hops pretty clean. Finish was just a tad sticky but acceptable.
The palate was about medium bodied with a good sipping structure to it. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt good.
Overall, thanks Blaine for the bottle! I’d have this again. RobertDale (6470) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 15, 2017

Bottle. Pours a light gold with a decent white head of froth that dies back to reveal a bit of lacing. Aromas of light citrus and a whiff of spruce are there, but pretty subtle for a DIPA. First sip reveals that this is a very nicely made Imperial IPA, but it also doesn’t have a lot of the punchy edginess that some of the very favorites in the field have. It’s a very well balanced but boasts an aggressive hops presence, however it doesn’t distinguish itself or make me go "wow!" It simply makes me smile and go back for a second when I’m done, and that is good enough for a Monday any day of the week! DrunkSanta410 (935) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 21, 2017
Bottle at home. Thanks Jeff! Pours a clear, light golden color. Head quickly dissipated to a thin film. Aroma is piney, a bit of faint pineapple, fragrant. Smells great. Taste is dank and piney, pine resin, floral. A bit of faint fruitiness with a moderate bitterness and hint of toasted malts. Very clean and smooth. Well executed beer all around. Impressive! Thanks again for sharing Jeff. schlitzfaced (92) - Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2017
