"not super impressed with this one - just too many great iipas on the market to buy this agian, but it was ok. aroma and flavor of pine and bready malts, with a little citrus and ample bitterness to back it up."

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Om draft at Isaac Newton’s. This was just okay for me. Very piney finish, some caramel malts, some notes of grapefruit. The aftertaste was a bit harsh in the pine department. Could have been blended better.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a snifter.
The appearance was a hazy copper/orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light speckled lacing clinging slightly.
The smell had some grapefruit/piney aromas here and there.
The taste was similar.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but not overbearing.
Overall, good DIPA, it’s nothing over the top but gets the DIPA fix done.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
After pouring and expecting to see my future in a frothy head that over stayed it's welcome similarly to a drunk and inappropriate uncle on an obligatorily awful holiday event, I shuddered with disgust at the aroma of an "alpha dog" after eating an expired disregarded batch of purina. So... There's that. It is a beer. It has a cool label. But even an alpha dog sniffs the a$$ of other dogs.

Beautiful nose, pine, floral, spice. Taste is not as good as nose, but still great, pine is prominent.

Slightly hazy copper under a sticky thin white head. Lovely nose with a bitter dose of piney and floral resins, with a sticky sweet note of papaya and a bunch of other tropical notes. Flavor is sticky with tropical fruity notes featuring papaya and grains of paradise, with a strong pine resin bitterness and some caramel.
