Aroma of peach, apricot, resin and pine. Flavor is similar, with some citrus bitterness becoming more apparent. The malt sweetness doesn’t quite balance out the aggressive hop character of the beer, but still very good.

Recommended. Pours a hazy orange and gold in the body with a puffy inch of white head. Moderate lacing on the glass. The nose is pine and resin laden with heavy grainy malts, light caramel. Taste is grassy and green hop bitterness with a heavy grapefruit and moderate resin presence. Light earthy, grainy malt makes a show. Medium body with medium carbonation. An above average DIPA!

Draft. Golden body with a frothy white head, lasting. Aroma of citrus, resin, grapefruit, pineapple. Note or orange peel. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/soft bubbly texture, lively carbonation. A bit one dimensional, but easy drinking with a nice mouthfeel.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear gold with plenty of foam that lasts and does well with the lacing.
The smell is is a mix of caramel malt and grain with the hops well represent by pine.
Even Steven on the first few sips between the malt and hops but I notice the alcohol kick more. The malt is sweet but also has a grain like character to it. The hops have pine but to me, it has more of an aspirin like bitterness.
Close to full bodied with medium carbonation.
This is decent but a rather difficult beer to drink not only taste wise but because the alcohol is intrusive. I am not likely to revisit.
