3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A mostly clear orange color with an off white head that settles to a film with decent lacing. Aroma of caramel and citrus with a bit of tropical fruit and pine. Taste is citrus and pine with a layer of caramel running through it. Orange peel and rind bitterness coats the tongue along with some earthiness and a bit of biscuit hiding in the background. Finishes mostly dry with a big but smooth bitterness. Mouthfeel is crisp with a medium/full body and a crisp level of carbonation. Big flavors that are mostly in balance for a IPA. Caramel sweetness doesn’t lead the show but is quite noticeable behind the hop flavors.

On tap at the Food Factory and again in the bottle. Aroma is very bitter grass and pine. Pours light amber with decent carbonation and a medium sticky head. Taste is bitter grapefruit rind, grass, and dry pine. Great hop presence and extremely bitter for how strong it is. Very impressive DIPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a mostly clear orange-amber with a thicker khaki head that settles to a film and leaves some nice clingy, spotty lace. Nose involves a nice pine and tropical fruit perfume, lots of pineapple, some mango, candied citrus, some spice, some sweet grainy stuff. Pretty sweet, decently bitter. Medium to full bodied, oily, soft yet pretty active, a bit syrupy, finishing somewhat dry and hoppy. Pretty decent, drinkable at its size, nice aromatics, but it’s a bit too sweet and syrupy.
