Bottle - 22oz. Cracked the bottle and was immediately greeted with an explosion of pine (Columbus and Citra?) and mango (Amarillo?). Citra pours a mildly hazy, beautiful sunset-orange. Boasts a perfect, not-too-foamy long-lasting head which acts as a cushion, softening the landing into that crisp co2 mouth-feel and immediate hop bite. HUGE aroma; Grass, pine, grapefruit, mango, bubblegum, honey, feet, and a hint of fat people BO. Smells a bit like the Christmas tree in my living room. What stands out of me is how medium-bodied this is, much more full and chewy than most imperial IPAs released lately, which are typically much thinner. Flavor is very similar to its aroma, minus the fruit; and not to my surpise ... not very bitter. Tastes "green," bringing to the table grass, pine, and a hint of oxidation (which comes with every IPA not consumed within 5 minutes of bottling). There is recognizable caramel malt character and sweetness grounding that hop flavor explosion, all while still allowing it to go out and play, much like a parent telling their teenage daughter she needs to be in by midnight. Finishes clean with zero off-flavors. This thing is dry-hopped so much that you can actually feel the hop oil coating your mouth after each sip. Overall, this is great stuff. Worthy of a GABF gold? ... perhaps. Lives up to its hype, even though the bottle I have is weeks old since bottling. I could only imagine what it tastes like fresh from the source. Road trip?
On tap at the brewery. Pours hazy golden with medium white head. Hoppy, dank, citrus, grapefruit, dry and lasting bitterness in finish. Medium bodied. Nice, maybe expected a bit more. fonefan (50004) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 14, 2017

From notes. Enjoyed at a tasting Kyle finally made it to at Mickey’s on December 01. 22 oz bottle. The pour is a lighter golden orange yellow color with a thick head of off-white head that slowly falls down to a thick film with a couple good spots of lace. The aroma is nice. The citrus is great. Huge citra hops, light bitterness, great citrus zest, and a surprising crispness. The flavor is much of the same. Big, bright citra hops and a light leafy bitterness. The bitter citrus zest is wonderful and lets this thing do what it is supposed to. The mouth feel is a little syrupy, but brightly carbonated with a lingering citra blast. I’m a big fan here.

Medium body and moderate carbonation. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 11, 2016
On draft at Caps & Taps. It pours a clear golden color wit a nice off white head. The aroma has passionfruit, lighter notes of grapefruit and some lightly toasted malt. The flavor has the same grapefruit and big passionfruit. Solid toasted malt with a very creamy, oily mouth feel, but dry on the palate. Medium spicy bitterness. A great West Coast IIPA.

650ml bottle from phesterjau, shared by many at Only Child. Thanks Jess! Yellowish orange pour with a white head. Big citra nose. Taste is super smooth citrus with some other fruits. Medium bodied, well blended. Finishes to the bitter side of bittersweet. Very, very smooth and well done. 15 MartinT (10014) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Grapefruit pulp and sandy minerals (cat litter to some) are met by resinous bitterness in this engaging Double IPA.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the hazy beige.
-The fruitiness is pleasant throughout.
-The mouthfeel is soft and effervesncent, quite drinkable for a Double IPA.
-Although this is a perfectly fine Double IPA, I think that their regular ’Just Outstanding IPA’ is more pleasant on many fronts.
