4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: very light haze, straw with a little copper. Medium head but great lace. The nose on this is awesome. There ’s a load of hops but that’s balanced buy some massive malt. Citrus caramel, fruit, tropical and intense. Far more malt than you would usually see on a West Coast Double IPA. Dry, opposite of sour but very bitter. Massive flavor and texture as well as being as bitter as your mother n law.
Almost has an English note to it. Freshness is great for the level of hops and alcohols.

12oz bottle Looks like a jar of honey. Golden hue, thin head, Pour shows some density that is evident in the pine resin. citrus and over abundance of hops. All that hops is well balanced leading to a pleasant, lingering bitterness on the pallet. 10%abv is noticable.

Lätt vitt huve som sjunker ner som en krona direkt. Ljuvlig doft sv amerikansk humle. Typisk västkust. Bra sting som en dipa ska va! Gran barr smått kådigt & humle skog som lägger sig som en ränns på tungans eftersmak.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden pour with a single finger head. Aroma of citrus and a little pith. Some grass. Medium to full mouth. Big time bitterness. Great citrus components. Dry finish. There is an alcohol bite here. Lots of dry pine and a little sweetness. This just socks you in the face with hops.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Caramel, very toasty, dank hop nose. Bright, glowing amber/orange color, thin head. Thick caramel backbone, deep and rich resinous hopping, a touch of hop burn in late mid palate, and alcohol is fairly apparent. Medium-heavy body. A big one, for sure. Getting pretty high in alcohol for a DIPA. Very tasty stuff.
