4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler from the taproom. Pours a hazy golden/amber with frothy white head. Aggressive hoppy pine and citrus aromas. This is a real DIPA- the hoppy flavor of this is out of control. Waves of hoppy goodness flow over the tongue, completely destroying the palate. Creamy mouthfeel with smooth bitter finish. Fantastic.

From Truckpro! I was super excited to see this beer included in an epic box since Nelson hops are a favorite of mine. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with an off-white head. Aroma is full on Nelson with some caramel malt. As the beer warms, the sweetness of the malts come out to balance out the bitterness. Medium bodied and somewhat sticky, but not syrupy in the least. The finish is on the dry end. This is my idea of DIPA!
