Bottle says 9%ABVBold coppery gold color with a densely capped white foam sitting on top with a staying power. Finally after swifting down the foam keeps itself to a thick skim always present and mega amounts of caked on lacing coats the glass.

Aroma is pungent of orangy oiled hoppy citrus. Quite fresh, dark, oily, and orange. A bit of peach and mango can be found within the nose as well.

Solid firm taster for a Dbl. IPA. Nothing over the top or super extreme here. But moderately present with big dark orange tones. Lightly doughy bready maltyness flows underneath. Clean, respectful, and well rounded with a very natural sweetness that floats right down. Lightly floral finish with leftover orange oiled hoppyness.

Body is a solid medium if not more so. Clean, firm, and smooth with a nice mild tang of orange flavors delicately kept together with soft chewy-esque bready malts.

Hell of a solid brew and a great price too! $4.98 a bomber is a excellent deal for this Deschutes beauty.
