Sample on tap. Clear amber / orange color. Good white head. Great lace. Medium / bigger body, lighter carbonation. Dry finish. Good hoppy aftertaste. Bigger bitterness, some sweet. Citrus, pine, big grassy. Solid, satisfying DIPA, need to revisit in bigger quantities

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from a growler shared by b3shine- thanks again, Beau! Pours a clear orange-hued gold with a small eggshell white head. Aroma of floral hops, dry and sweet malts, crackers, and a bit of citrus. Flavor of citrusy and floral hops, sweet and caramel malts, and not a whole lot else. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a floral, sweet mouthfeel. Drinks more like a regular IPA than a DIPA, but works in such a simple, straightforward way. Sneaky.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Poured clear dark amber color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Medium to heavy complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bitter flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration.This is a standout beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to taster at Fifty West. Looks solid; a transparent gold with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes nicely hopped with a nicely balanced backbone. Good on the palate. This is good stuff.
