Bottle at Craig’s. Clear gold pour, thin white head. Massive pine, resin and grapefruit aromas. Taste has too much caramel sweetness though. Bit drier would’ve been ace.

Bottle, thanks Craig. Golden with white head. Nice big resinous pine aroma with grapefruit and mango. Taste of grapefruit and mango, some pine. Medium body and bitterness. Nice smell and flavout bit maybe a bit more in the palate could work.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle into tulip: Pours golden with a big, white, head. Aroma pine, grapefruit, citrus, caramel, earthy. Taste is way too sweet, it overwhelms the piney hops that do come through. Medium body, sticky mouthfeel, a bit cloying. It’s OK.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: Light caramel. Moderate head.
N: Tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple. Pine and earth. Brackish. Marijuana.
T: Big bitterness that overtakes the sweetness.
M: Very alcoholic. Sticky. Medium body. Scraping.
O: Decent. I’m not a fan of bitter throat scrapers. Flavors don’t excite either.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweeter than I like in a DIPA, a little bit like an orange slice dipped in some caramel. Not hard to drink but not super crazy good.
