Aroma is intense hoppiness. Color is a deep amber, with a very slight haze. Taste is resiny, with tons of citrus, particularly grapefruit. Practically no malt flavor. Finish is long, bitter. A bit sweet, but normal for style. Tons of lacing that clings to the side of the glass. Great beer that really shines. Opens up more as it warms.

Appearance is terrific with a red amber color and a thick foamy head with excellent lacing. Smell of pastures gone by. Earthy, hoppy, sweet, weedy. Taste is sweet up front with brown sugar and a creamy grapefruit in the backend. Truly a smooth blend of malt and hop. Very good IPA.

So happy about this beer. The pour is absolutely beautiful. Intense red-gold with a billowing creamy off white head. Really fantastic. Aroma is all hops. Full bodied and malty. Finishes with hop bitterness. A great beer.

750 ml. bottle, bottled on 12/17/12- Pours hazy dark orange to red with a huge dense creamy off white head that wants to stick around and some nice layered lace. The aroma is spicy hops and sweet malt. The taste is different than expected, there is a nice hoppy bite to it, malt is there, but its not really the kind of malt I dislike in my IPAs, i dont mind it actually. There is a nice spiciness as well, very interesting take on the DIPA, dry bitter finish, but actually in many ways the Hop Notch I rated just before this seems more hoppy. body is medium and carbonation is medium to high. Overall I have had better, but this is not a loser either, it gets points for venturing out of the normal box I think, I did like the spicy character it had.
