3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (22 oz). Thanks to Chris! Hazy dark golden/orange with a medium creamy off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is of malt, fruits, caramel, resinous notes, citrus and floral notes. Taste is moderately to heavily sweet with malt, citrus, fruits, caramel, resinous notes, floral notes and moderate bitterness. Alcohol is present, but not that much for a 10%+ abv beer. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Dry finish. Not cloying, but still too sweet and malty. Above average DIPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Release 17 bottle from GE. Not sure why it took so long for this to show up in Pittsburgh but it shows a bit in the taste. Not a drain pour but not at its best. I will need to get a fresh one if possible in a few months. Pours a clear orange with a fluffy white orange head that leaves an intricate lacing. Aroma of hops faint pineapple maybe slight mango. Some aroma of an old IPA but the malt backbone is still tolerable. Taste is definitely big bitterness. Oily slick mouthfeel with medium high carbonation.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Yes, yes, and yes. Pours a cloudy, particulate-laden amber-golden with a thicker cream-colored head that settles slowly, leaving some splotchy lace. Nose is big and in your face right away with big pine, grapefruit, tropical fruit (mango-pineapple), yeasty dough, honey malt notes, plenty of resin, spice, floral notes, some caramel, and some alcohol. Really complex and layered nose, perfumey and mesmerizing. Taste is pretty sweet, but intensely bitter. Big bodied, rich, syrupy, very oily, tingly, vibrant with hops, fairly actively carbed, with a really long dry tongue-scraping finish. Very damn good.

Aroma is nice and hoppy but kind of faint. The taste hoppy with hints of grapefruit and citrus. Solid beer. Has something in it that’s a little off though but I’m not sure what.
