Clear amber with a thick white foam. Subdued aroma. First taste was a little coppery but it becoes more malty with with a sweeter hop finish. Nice malt backbone. Nice IIPA without being a hop bomb. Enjoyable.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2016 Pours a perfect amber with lasting off-white head and great lacing. Aroma is strong, boozy pine with a little sweet pale malt. Taste is fruity sweetness up front, then into a pretty vacant middle and then into a more citrus hop burn mixing with caramel malt in the end. Palate is gentle and smooth, making it easy drinking for the style. Overall it’s good, but not as mind-blowing as I once thought. -2 taste, -2 palate, -4 overall.

Pours a clear amber with great foamy head and insane lacing all the way down the glass. Aroma is big juicy citrus (orange and tropical) with pine and a little sweet bread, biscuity malt. Taste is mellow malts up front, mildly sweet and fruity. A few seconds later, a wave of earthy citrusy hops bring the bitterness, drying out a little but leaving enough sweetness to balance. Aftertaste is a great blend of citrus juice and caramel malts, with an ideal lingering bitterness. Not much evidence of alcohol - just a little if you are looking for it. The palate is unreal! Medium bodied, very smooth and creamy - yet thins out as it dries in the finish, keeping it from being too heavy. Smoothest IIPA I think I’ve had. Left me wanting more. If there’s any downside to this - I can see why some call it just a little too heavy or syrupy... but for me, it works. It’s not a deal breaker. This is a great beer. 8+5+9+5+17=4.4

pale, semi-hazy orange with a full finger of lingering white head. Aromas of grapefruity citrus and pine resonate, with very little else showing through. Taste is a citrus of a different color, kind of a melon-flavored pine combination. Very interesting. Fairly sweet, with some malt showing through. Only real complaint is a detectable metallic flavor. Doesn’t taste very boozy. Finish is clean, which surprises me.

IPA Glass. Copper color with a thick pillowy head. Sweet smell of hops, I figured it would have been stronger based on the ABV. Very thick sticky hops on the front but finishes surprisingly light. I prefer Sierra Nevada’s more but this is a very good IPA.

Bottle pour dark golden. Nose dank hop, malt and slight vegetal. Taste sweet malt, trace of spicy hop, mid palate strong bitter. Astringent bitter finish. A little too much vegetal character in this one.

Draft, poured deep yellow with white head. For a DIPA not overly hoppy in a good way, hide the 9 abv well
