On tap at Zeitgeist, pours a hazy golden with a medium creamy off-white head. Aroma brings out notes of pine, floral hops, and crackery, biscuity malt. Flavour is very fruity and piney, with notes of light fruity notes, piney and floral hops, and some zesty notes. Wonderfully balanced and brewed IIPA, with a nice astringent, zesty finish. Excellent IIPA.

On tap at Bistro DIPA Fest. Hazy orange in color with a small white head. Big citrusy aroma with orange and grapefruit and some malty sweetness. The flavor has a sweet malt base with orange juice, grapefruit rind, and herbal notes. Mildly acrid on the mouthfeel with medium-full body and good hop resins. A solid DIPA but didn’t really stand out at the Fest.
