Bottle shared by a friend. Pours clear amber with a thick white head. Malty and piney nose with a bit of citrus. Flavor starts malty, then turns to pine and grass before a sweet DIPA finish.

24 karat pour with some burnt tangerine highlights and a fluffy eggshell cap. Extremely fragrant aroma of grapefruit pith, Ponderosa, earthy lemongrass, and peppery spice. Flavor is assertive also with bright orange peel, juicy tangelo, and tropical fruits like mango and papaya. Subtle evergreen and caramal notes for balance. Nice, oily mouthfeel that sticks to the teeth and gums. Delicious!

Huge citrus nose, slightly metallic, simcoe in the middle, and blood on the finish. Not terrible, but seems a little overrated.

Pretty solid IPA. Good malt, interesting hop flavor, nothing really transcendent but a good beer.

Bomber pour..2.69 close out bin at stateline...not going in with high expectations on this and to tell you the truth this was an enjoyable double..quite easy to drink with almost no reference pt to the high abv..pretty well done with biscuit malt winning out..could easily polish off a few of these in one setting..

Beautiful DIPA. Spirited copper pour with strong grapefruit aroma. One of the more pine-tasting IPAs I've had, which is fantastic. Resin flavor under that, on a solid malt backbone. Requisite bitterness but not overpowering. A bit of lingering sweetness surprisingly. Another spectacular DIPA from a brewery I've never tried before!

On tap at Hot City Pizza, cloudy pour, medium head, nice flavor. Prefer some more hoppiness; but still solid.
