4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bought from the GLBC gift shop... by the end of this review, I’ll see if I should be cursing their 6 per person per day limit. Starts with an aroma of pine and grapefruit, with a little tannin note to it. Pours a slightly hazy reddish amber, with almost no head, leaving decent lacing down the side of the glass. It has the lovely oily palate of hops, with a flavor that begins on sweet notes, that quickly turn to citrus and bitterness, with a nice long finish. The alcohol is a bit noticeable in the back of the throat, but overall a great DIPA, and one that I’m glad I bought.
And as for the 6 per person per day rule, if it let me get this, it’s good... if it kept some of my coworkers from getting it, I can still live with it.
This is just a bit too sweet, which in turn let’s the alcohol come through. Not a favorite of the style for me. willisread (3341) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 27, 2017
Bottle from J’s. Pours a clear, deep gold with a small finger of head that dissipates almost instantly. Oranges, malt and caramel dominate the nose. Light on the palate, citrus and orange hardcandy. Caramel and booze. Finish is a little hot. 1pintatatime (162) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 3, 2016
Big aroma over a small white head. Taste is bursting with tropical flavor. Nice long finish. Very drinkable at 9%. Very good but not quite great. obguthr (6344) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2016
Overripe orange, lemongrass, and ash nose, not strong. Cloudy orange, thick sticky yellow head. Sweet triple sec, vegetal, tangerine. Full body, easy carbonation, warm. A bit cloying. bigguns22 (798) - Maryland, USA - SEP 11, 2016
This is a great IPA. Pour is cloudy amber with a small head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy with lite earth tones. A creamy beer hops to go around and a earthy but sweet finish that leaves you a little bitter !

Great looking, smelling, and tasting brew.
In short, this is ideal for fans of Dogfish Head's seminal 90 Minute IPA but with a bent towards more tropical than resinous hops.
Great for a hot summer afternoon

Really good beer. A great taste for an imperial IPA. Hoppy and citrus on the finish. Pours nice. Darwenus (1134) - Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2016
This is a balanced but complex imperial IPA, and I really like it. It pours hazy orange, average head, with an aroma of caramel, booze, and big, dry, bitter hops. The flavor is sweet up front and then closes with a burst of hops and vapor on the back of the tongue. Finish is sweet again. Nice. odinstyr (795) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 23, 2016
Pours orange with a moderate white head. Smells of citrus and caramel. Taste is balanced bitter and sweet. Citrus, caramel and bread, bit of pine and hint of mango and pineapple. Sledutah (7526) - Utah, USA - JUL 19, 2016
