3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a translucent light copper color with a small white head that slowly recedes to a film. The aroma is big and bold with oranges, clementines and grapefruit. The flavor is not nearly as citrusy as the nose would suggest, there is a good dose of pine in the forefront, with moderate oranges and grapefruit filling in the back end. The malt base was unremarkable from a flavor standpoint. Palate is full and silky with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering bitter grapefruit and pine. Overall: The nose is first-rate, but the piney aspect of the flavor did not really grab me. The bitterness comes across as a bit harsh, that aside its a nice little DIPA.

Tap and bottle. Another excellent hop oriented brew from KD. A tiny bit more tame than some of theirs, but still piney and citrused out like crazy. Good stuff!

The Sampler, NYC tap: Pours copper with a white head. Aroma is very fragrant hops: plenty of cannabis, pine, resin, and some citrus. Taste is very hoppy, but not overly bitter. Nice oily and malty backbone, but there is no question that this beer is hops first and everything else second. Slightly sweet. Quite good.

Flaske: Orange let diset. Duft af sød malt og masser af amerikansk hume. Lækker drikbar øl med en sødme der matcher humlen. Dejlig øl.

Pour on tap at One Eyed Betty, clear straw yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big dank, pine, weedy hops into a bit of orange and grapefruit. Taste is a mix of onion, garlic, resin, hints of grass, touch of slight orange, finishing bitter, dry. Eh, the vegetal hop notes ruin it a bit.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Alcohol present and overt resin and earth hops. Lots of dank. Clear orange with a full white head that lingers. Taste is grassy and dank. High bitterness. This does not work as well as most of their awesome hop explosions.
