very light pale body with a short lived white head. very strong and pleasant floral/piney aroma. very resinous mouthfeel with an excellent balance between the malt and hops, with the hops overpowering the malt a bit. excellent lingering floral bitter finish. real good beer.

12 oz. pours pale yellow with just a hint of head. Smells of rich caramel malts, some grapefruit and orange. Wow very good pine is the first thing I notice, I also get oily hop resin, grapefruit, mango and a great malt sweetness that brings a nice balance to this dipa. Mouthfeel is oily and thick, the finish is surprising that it is not long and bitter it’s meduim. crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - APR 11, 2011
Poured an orange-amber body with a thick white head that faded to a thin coating. No real lacing. Aroma had strong hop notes, mainly grapefruit. Some caramel malts maybe even a slight grass note. Flavor was predominantly hops. Pine and citrus notes, malts were toasted caramel and although on the light side it was enough to balance out the hops. Overall body seemed light and easy to drink. Finish was dry. VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - APR 10, 2011
Draft (from growler) - Pours a pretty golden amber in color with a very slight orange tint and small white head that produced some small lacing on the glass. Aroma is fairly strong of grapefruit hops and slight of caramel malts. Flavor matches that pretty well. The hop flavor is strong, but the bitterness is not overwhelming at all. Well balanced. Finish is all hops, medium bitter and clean. Good beer! jimhilt (2610) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - APR 8, 2011
Pours a two-finger cream head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Crystal clear pale amber/orange color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is light grapefruit hops, flavor is grapefruit hops and caramel. Higher ABV is hidden. Nice DIPA. $2.49 for a 12oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma.

Bottle. Pours an orange golden body with a mostly white head, light lacing and a pillowly head. Soft and sweet with grapefruit, light citrus hoppiness, a hint of pine and a light malt body. Bitter body with a light fruit sweetness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Well done. weharvie (40) - USA - APR 7, 2011
Aroma - wonderful floral aroma; Appearance - very clear golden yellow; Taste - very tarte and bitter; Palate - crisp; Overall - too bitter to drink more than a pint at a time. needs more malt balance. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2011
Nice golden-orange hue. Cakey-alcohol nose. Very smooth on the tongue, with a soft carbonation. Malt side has a big, nutty-caramel quality. Hops are floral, grassy and somewhat citrusy. Alcohol’s there, but mostly hidden. Dryish, moderate bitterness. Decent brew. nolankowal (938) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2011
Bottle. Orange pour, white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, a bit of spice, earthy hops. Flavors of sweet caramel, a bit of booze, fruits, and dull earthy hops. Medium/thick body, sweet, a bit medicinal and a bit hot... bit of a mish-mash. Overall, not sure if this is old or just really unbalanced.

Picked up a 12 oz bottle at TC Craft. This was a great mixture of citrus tones, maltiness, and hop presence for my taste. The texture was also creamy and smooth. Looking forward to taking down a 6 pack.
