Draft at sb. Pours a clear dark amber gold with a scant white head that goes away. Big fruity orange zest, grapefruit, and caramel nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Tangy orange, grapefruit, and soft lemon zest mid palate. Tons of caramel. Long tangy finish. Very nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Huge thanks to GCurlow for the bottle. Hazy deep golden pour with a wispy white head. Big juicy citrus hop aroma, dank hop resins, light candy. Flavors were lightly candied hops, big citrusy fruit punch with a deep lingering bittersweet finish. Plus mouthfeel without being viscous, moderate carbonation. Delightful stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at PreFunk. Aroma is all hop, leading in to a big hop smack in the chops, lots of bitterness, lots of warmth. Clear medium gold body, small wispy head, this all about the hops from taste to finish. Decent DIPA

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The liquid pours out of the bottle a hazy amber filled with residue, and capped with a thick, dense, sherbet-white head. The aroma is strong hops, fresh, filled with citrus and pine. As I drink down the foam clings to the sides of the glass, wet and heavy; only slightly sticky, but consistent and soft. the taste is bitter, drying my gums and the underside of my tongue. The flavor is fairly consistent with the nose, drawing on that bitterness in the taste and combining the two with a malt backbone that balances fairly well. A basic IIPA with lots of hops up front and a good foundation. I wont be running out to find it, but all in all, it’s not a bad brew and I would drink again without thinking about it.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Murky lighter orange copper, lots of unappetizing big chunks, mostly fading off-white foam. Resinous citrus hop aroma, some c-malt. Initially quite bitter herbal floral hop taste, resinous, some spice, milder c-malts behind, softens and becomes more citrusy grapefruit as it warms. Average carbonation, medium-full bodied, more aggressively hopped. DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at Saraveza for 5th Annual IIPA Festival. Golden color. Aroma is caramel and sweet citrus. Taste is sweet tropical citrus with a healthy backbone of malt. Quite hoppy and herbal, yet the malts balance it all out.
