I liked this double IPA. It has a nice citrus and pine character that is surprisingly balanced with the dense sweet bready body.

Can to pint / bought at a liquor store in Wichita. Aroma is massive pine and oily resins. Moderate orange arrived as it warmed. Hazy deep orange with moderately sustained white head that patterns down. Taste is overtly sweet - almost cloyingly so. In the mid-palate there is slight orange, but finishes with a massive bitter spike. Perhaps an old can, but the hops dont showcase at all here for flavor and aroma.

Can. Thanks rosenbergh! Slightly hazy medium copper colored body with a thin bright white head. Powerful grapefruit and pine nose. There is also some herbal goodness. The taste is black pepper with some note of grapefruit rinds. The finish is very dry and piney. The body is light and smooth for the abv. Very well done.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2016 Draft @ Tapwerks OKC. Very light hoppy aroma. Golden amber color with a thin white head, great lacing. Flavor is very smooth. Great blend of citrus, a little pine, gentle bitterness, a lot of tangerine! Full bodied and creamy mouthfeel. It might be a little tame for a DIPA, but I loved it. Could drink all night...slowly...

Fun name. Fun can. Aggressive hop profile and big sticky sweet body. Would love a little more fruity hops but thats just where my taste has gone these days. Finish is requisite bitter pine.

Tap@ McNellies - Tulsa: clear copper brown with a fluffy off white head. Sweet notes of floral hops and caramel. Thin body which is nice compared to so many thick syrupy 2 IPAs. Musty hop flavors with a bitter trailer. Nice!
