UPDATED: MAR 2, 2014 On draft. Nice flame orange color. Not a lot else going on to justify that ABV. Lots of alcohol burn. I guess theres some citrus present, but its overwhelmed by the alcohol. I havent any idea how this one pulls the ratings it does. A big meh.

22 oz. bottle at RBWG, the Grand Tasting portion of the evening. Pours a clear, bright gold with almost no head. Notes of citrus fruits, florals, caramel and biscuit malts, grass, straw, honey, and earth. A hint of tropical and pine, but they didnt factor much into this one. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a resinous mouthfeel. This was a long-time want that I was thrilled to see show up, so it fell a bit short of my admittedly lofty expectations. Good DIPA, but didnt strike me as deserving of its world-class status.

On tap 4 oz. pour at Meridian Pint in Columbia Heights, Washington, DC. Clear, bright amber with a large off-white head and excellent lacing. Beautiful to behold. Aroma of citrus, intense tropical fruit ;including mango, passion fruit and guava) and caramel. Taste of bitter orange, grapefruit, lemon, pineapple and tropical fruit. Medium body and medium carbonation. A delicious, citrusy tropical fruit salad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured into a tulip glass. Inch head forms giving away to a nice lacing.Light amber colr. Aroma of orange and pine. Citrus and pine stand forth with hints of earth. Alcohol warms the palate, but does not destroy the experience. This beer is the complete package for a DIPA.

Bottle shared at RBWG! Pours a golden orange with fluffy white head. Aroma is a hoppy bomb, lots of new world zestiness. Taste is less than the nose, but still very nice. Would love a whole bottle of this to myself.
