Bottle. Clear golden pour with a nice white head. Tropical fruit & citrusy hop aromas. The taste pretty much follows suit with peach, orange, mango, pineapple, and pine notes supported by a muted caramel malt backbone. Light and refreshing..

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2016 Fresh growler courtesy of tkunkel. many thanks man! A: Dark copper-orange-amber body. Large, off-white head formed from a sizable stream of carbonation from the bottom of the glass. Good retention holds the head up for a few minutes before crashing to a nice skim and a well-defined ring. Nice coating of lacing, not sheets, but significant coverage. S: Tropical fruits like mango, pineapple, grapefruit and orange dominate up front. A nice resinous quality. Freshly baked biscuits and bread. Some zesty spice. I also was getting a hint of caramelized brown sugar. Very interesting. Tons of hops, but a sizable malt base. T: Like the nose there are massive doses of hops and malt here in the flavor profile. The hops are pronounced with mango and grapefruit separating themselves from the rest of the citric notes. Lots of sweet, freshly baked baked goods. M: Creamy, medium body with good rolling carbonation. Resinous and oily. Solid bitterness throughout culminating with a nice aggressive bite. O: All around interesting and enjoyable dIPA. Combines the freshness of west coast style dIPAs with the sweet bakery like malt of big, east coast IPAs.

Got this beer at Vendome Beverly Hills.. They got the best selection In LA I love the way this beer smells. Its all tropical--pineapple,mango,peach,tangerin and mandarin oranges. Has a little orange zest in the smell as well-- real strong on all tropical citrus notes. No real malt in the smell just pure hop bliss.Very crisp clean and fruity DIPA. Very easy drinkability with amazing flavors but the best part of this beer is the nose. This is hands down the best DIPA I have ever had

22oz bottle. Rating #60. Clear golden/orange color with a nicely lacing white head. Nice aroma, tropical fruits and citrus. Very smooth, more citrus and a nice little aftertaste, really tasty. (1871)

Grab a bottle at Stearns Liquor down in Long Beach. Thanks Stearns Liquor for always getting this amazing brews. I open up the bottle and there is an amazing aroma that is very strong on pineaple, grapefruit, and citra hops. It pours light copper with 2 inches of white foam. You get alot of citra hops in the taste and lots orange, grapefrui and some bitterness. There was also some buttery notes that I did not enjoy but that vanished as I was finishing the bottle. Finishes a bit bitter with a bit of caramel malt. Pretty dry. The mouthfeel is medium thick, very smooth, and has a nice carbonation. Overall a great beer but I was excpecting Pliny standards. I would love to have it again. Maybe on tap, I though Just outstanding was much better on tap then on bottle so maybe this is to, not sure.

Thanks to whoever brought this to the Inaugural "Imminent Liquidation Bottle Share" Event. Growler poured into a taster glass. A - Pours deep amber orange with a small half finger tall white head, dissipating down to almost nothing, leaving light lacing down the glass. S - HUGE citric hop punch up front that never really fades from the limelight. Some caramel malt and tropical fruits offer as much balance as they can but it is really all about the hops. T - Still plenty of citric hops up front; just not as much as the nose; giving way slowly to a mix of light caramel malt and fresh tropical fruits. Finish is quite bitter but it doesnt last for very long. I really like this one. It is not too over the top like others, it is quite refreshing actually. Glad I finally got to try it. M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Nice crisp feel with a good amount of lingering hop bitterness in the finish. D - Dangerously high. I finally get to try this one on for size. I really enjoyed the Hill Farmstead Citra but I think the Kern River was a bit more well rounded. I hope to have this again someday, preferably on-tap!

Courtesy of MrBubbler thanks, Adam! Prepared to be let down given the hype surrounding this beer, but its glorious. Full orange body with a mild cloudiness, abundant carbonation, and medium lacing. Nose of sharp grassy hops with a very slight sweetness. Mouthfeel is thick and crisp, just right for a brew which like this one gets close to PtE. The taste follows this trajectory but with more sweet PushUps flavors, ala Alpine Duet, and this makes for a rad hybrid and a super good WC DIPA.

On tap in sample size at the 2011 Bistro DIPA Fest. Pours a hazy golf with a dense white froth. Malty brown sugar and candied lemon hops on the nose with a piney accent. Flavor is lemon zest with a light pale malt note. I appreciate the hop focus without a syrupy malt profile but it also is allowing a soapy astringent note to come through. Solid bitterness but not really up to DIPA standards. A good beer but Im not buying the hype here.
