Pours light amber/pinkish? with small white foam/bubble head. Aroma- grapefruit, dirt. Taste- malty grapefruit. Tart, dirt grapefruit aftertaste. Really smooth. Again, not a fan of grapefruit-dirt hops, but thatís really only strong in aftertaste. Smooth caramel? Appreciate. Almost plum in beginning, there is a caramel wave before low grapefruit-dirt end.

Citrius and pine hop aroma. Lots of sweet malt on the back end. Pretty good stuff but nowhere near zombie dust or fresh citra ninja.

Tap at Paradiso (Dupont). Pours orange with no head and a little bit of lacing. Notes of apricot, some toffee and lots of piney bitterness. Light sweetness and high bitter in the tastes. Medium body with lively carbonation. Well done.

Bottle. Golden color. Mango, citrus and a hint of hopoil in the aroma. Alcoholic flavor. Hopoil. A firm bitterness with some citrus and tropical fruit. Lovely aroma in a powerful beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours with a clear golden yellow hued body with a large, barely off-white head that lasts. Good lace. Aromas are of insanely tropical fruit, dank hops. Somewhat off malt character that I use to refer to as soggy malt or wet dog. Still canít find a better term for it (its not DMS), and I mostly get it from certain Canadian maltsters more than others. Mildly grassy, fruity, caramel. Flavors are very fruity, a bit alcohol forward, sweet, pepper, lots of grassy and tropical fruit notes. A bit of resiny cohumulone or other deeply harsh bittering sensation in an otherwise not very bitter balanced beer. Light butterscotch notes, warming, fruity, floral. Drinkable and enjoyable, but a bit not to my liking (yeast and malt wise). Good bitterness balance and good hop flavor. Warming with medium carbonation and a slightly fuller body with some minerals at the finish.

Golden tangerine pour with a small eggshell head that leaves as a wisp. Aroma subtle considering the aggressive flavor. Orange peel, tangelo, grapefruit, lemon, mango and papaya. Definitely has a tropical fruit presence. Invisible alcohol and not a ton of evergreen or caramel. Citrus forward, without doubt. Absolutely delicious!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells like youíre stepping into a pine tree processing plant! Catty, grassy and strong pine aromas rise off the crystal clear light copper body with a foamy white head. The first taste is as explosively hoppy as the aroma! Tons of resiny pine flavor followed by some grapefruit and pith. The bitterness lays down and puts your tongue in delicious hoppy straitjacket. But just as it peaks, some dark caramel and toffee sweetness comes through to balance it out almost perfectly. Then the alcohol steps up to sweep some of this away but leaves all the good parts behind. Thereís a bit of a citrusy lemon flavor in the background but itís beaten down by the heavier flavors. Needless to say, thereís a lot of bitterness left behind and the flavors make you want to take another sip immediately. Surprisingly easy to drink for a 10% ABV beer. This is one big, delicious IPA that I canít wait to try again.
