Sampled from the tap at the 2010 Indiana WInterfest. Poured a hazy gold with a white head. Aroma had a nice combo of rye malts and citrus hops. Flavor began with citrus notes and then finished with a combination of pine and rye malt notes.

Grapefruit hop aroma. White head. Golden coloured a little hazy in appearance and very hoppy with a crisp and bitter malt finish.

Growler from Josh...aka..Stfun... Nice orange color, decent head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Flavor has a bitter orange juice taste... piney, mango and some fruityness. A strong malt backbone to balance it out. Unique DIPA... Overall I am glad this beer held up being in a growler for a week. Nice beer. Thanks Josh!

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2010 Fresh growler picked up and drank last night. Very solid, but not quite what I was expecting. Pours a nice murky dark orange, very cloudy. Aroma is bitter orange juice and grass. Flavor is juicy, full of orange, mango, grass, with some yeast in the background. No real hop bite or copper finish that I enjoy. A good and tasty beer, but not what I’d expect from a double IPA.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2009 From what I gather, I got the first public serving of this one. Served from a firkin at HBG3. Pous murky as hell yellow orange, working on brown. The nose is that Juicy Fruit aroma that I love so much. The flavor is a mess of tropical flavors. A nice malty cutter. We have a long bitter finish. I want to revisit this when I find the regular draft version.
