Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a light tannish white head. Some lacing as the head settles. Nice aroma of melon, pineapple and slighl florals. Sweet upfront, fruity, apple, and then BAM a pretty solid wall of bitterness buckles your mouth at the end and then lingers on. Medium mouthfeel. Flavorful.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is muted hops and citrus. Hard for me to smell anything strong though. Very muted.
Taste is hoppy, citrus, with a little vanilla. Has a bit of a tang at the end, but otherwise very smooth.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours an opaque amber color with a thin, fading white head. Aroma is pine, floral, spicy; aromatics are simble but very nice here. Taste is very floral, lots of pine, some resin; didn’t get a lot of sweetness. Nice hoppy bitterness throughout. Some nice lacing. Medium carbonation. Chewy but wet mouth feel. Lots of personality here; not your garden variety DIPA. Inspired. Excellent.

Great malt forward DIPA here. The bittering is there and is just enough to save this very malty DIPA. The hops are citrus and heavy floral almost like perfume or potporri. Good stuff for sure.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle poured golden amber to almost orange color with quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is strong and sweet in the floral sense. A solid medium bodied dipa with strong characteristics of floral hops and sweet as in honey almost cloyingly sweet. Get some bitterness from the hops but its almost mild as such to what you are use to for a dipa. On the backend of this I do pick up some citrus flavors mild as such they are there. Very good dipa.

Draft at Taps 25, Lansing. Hazy medium orange-brown body, thin cream head. Nose and body of pulpy grapefruit rind, bitter and sweet but not syrupy or cloying. Alcohol noticeable. Solid beer, not a standout.
