3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours clear light amber with 1 finger of ivory head, large bubbles. Minimal lacing. Aroma is a battle between the floral, citrusy hops and the bready malts. Taste is similar, a hit of honey sweetness followed by resiny hops, along with notes of peach and orange. Plenty of malt, but the hop bitterness persists through the finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Didn’t meld well for me; a good, but not great DIPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach - saving a bit yet, but had inspiration from reading article from the brewer, thanks bro! Pours Poured an orangey yellow with an off white head. Almost no lacing. Aroma has citrus and pine. And more citrus and pine. A bit of bubblegum later. Taste is of citrus and pine, heavy resin, and some sweeter caramelly malts in the solid backbone. Medium bodied and sticky. Light alcohol presence. Finishes more to the bitter side of bittersweet. This is not a top 10 DIPA, or even close to it, but it is solid and tasty, and likely this breweries’ best offering.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker glass.
Almost clear gold with a decent airy white head.
Hoppy nose - some fruit, some pine, some floral. Caramel and honey as well.
Sweetish malt, some alcohol, juicy hop flavor (ripe fruits), tea, caramel, med-hi bitterness.
Med-full body, somewhat balanced, though a bit tired. OK.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy orange amber copper. Big fluffy cotton white head that laces down to a nice coating. Aroma is candied caram ale malts and tropical citrus. Taste follows with an abrupt piney bitter hop finish. Aftertaste brings back echoes of sweet citrus with a base of booze and bitter. Decent.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a rich golden color with a finger of white sticky foam. Lots of duality between spicy earthy english style hops with an underlying fruity citrus quality that adds come complexity and contrast to the lightly bready malt backbone... long linger earthy bitterness with hints of citrus rind and fresh grass.
