3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a hazy golden-apricot color with a medium sized foamy tan head that left good lacing. The aroma was strong sweet pine, pineapple, grapefruit and fruit cocktail. The flavor was sweet and bitter fruit cocktail, pine, and catbox. The finish was long and bitter with lingering fruit cocktail and pine though turning a bit dry at the end. Moderately full bodied and the alcohol was well hidden. Nice.

Draft at the brewpub courtesy of lithy. Thanks! Pours a clear copper color with a large frothy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of big toffee malts with citrus and resin hops. The taste is herbal, citrus, melon and resin hops with toffee malts. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness, just a bit off balance. Solid DIPA.
