On tap at The Pumphouse. Not as amazing as I’d expected, just a solid tasting beer, would try again though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (2016 batch). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with a hint of diacetyl. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
I wanted to like this more, as it’s nicely balanced and quaffable for a DIPA, but the aroma just doesn’t do much. I like that the hops are more herbal-spicy-flowery than typical American west coast beers, but it’s just too restrained to be exciting and there seems to be a touch of diacetyl lurking in there as well. Drinkable but it just doesn’t rise to the next level.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Straw orange and yellow color. Nice bright white head. Lots of spotty lacing.
Nose is lots of candied pine and citrus, good malt backbone. Touches of lime jello.
Taste is sweet and herbal bitterness. Kind of works and kind of does not. Harsh bitterness in the end. Very sweet in the mouth. Good amount of oil though.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour on tap, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of herbal, grass hops into a bit of caramel, toffee, some sweet citrusy notes into a bit of jammy notes, some slight grass. Taste is a mix of caramel, some earth, orange, hints of citrus into a bit of jam, grass, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is a light gold color. Orange peel comes through in the aroma very strongly. It hits your tongue with a fleeting moment of sweetness and fill out to a bold hop bitterness. It lingers and through the progression of flavor I get a somewhat smokey flavor.

from notes: not sure on the age, probably middling. A little muddled IMHO, but not bad. Malt and pungent and bitter hops play together well. Big sticky body, but - not a standout in the aroma or flavor department. Just ok, and probably a one timer."
