Pours a golden slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells tropical fruits, sweetish. Tastes the same bit floral. Average carbo, medium body and a sticky texture.

Very enjoyable beer, I would like darker appearance for an IPA, as well as a more floral hops aroma component

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy but crisp amber pour with small watery head. Smells of malt, a bit of honey and spice, alcohol, piney hop. Tastes quite thick, very very hoppy and resinous, ends on a slightly
odd sour/musty note. Body is very oily. Reminds me a bit of the 8Wired Hopwired except not as balanced and more sour. Not bad but would be excellent if taste had more to it than big hops + sourness.

Bottle from Bottle Shop at home. Bright orange translucent pour. Big resinous hops aroma. Taste is similarly very big - resin, vegetal, a bit sour. Very bitter, boozy finish. Not the most drinkable but not bad. Not sure I'd get again.

This is a really great IPA. Very drinkable especially for a DIPA. Very well balanced between the hops and grains. Great flavor and not overly bitter. Great beer.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
I love the way a good DIPA looks. It’s like a well proportioned, classic, beauty. Well we have a good looker here. The body was clear, and a couple of shades deeper than amber. The head was two fingers thick at first, but settled down a little smaller afterwards, and there was a steady stream of gentle carbonation. The aroma was prototypical DIPA, in the form of grapefruit, and was quite strong, as it hit me even at an arms length. The first sip indicated a hop bomb, as the bitterness was bracing and bold. There was a lot of citric tasting hop acids, and they were supported by a biscuit like malt backing. The finish was bready, and the hops lingered on. This was a well crafted DIPA, and should be taken as a textbook example of the style. Everything here was just as it should be.
