3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is a deep piney hop resin with a bit of sweet malt to back it up. Flavor is again a very nice chewy piney hop resin with a solid malt backbone to tighten things up. A little of that resin is left on the tongue as this goes down. Pretty solid DIPA and if you did not know this was 10% you could not tell.
