Poured a deep copper color in my tulip glass, maybe a little too dark for my liking in a IIPA. Beautiful head and lacing as I sipped the beer. Not a huge hop head nose but goes very well. Balance is nice! Not a real strong mouthfeel but has a real bitter finish. Lots of fruit notes throughout the entire drink. This beer is 10% and you dont taste it one bit. Wow I could get in trouble drinking this! Thumbs up!

Aroma of tropical fruit and pine with hints of resin. A cloudy copper pour with a white ring and minimal lacing. The palate is fruity, with notes of biscuit malts and a strong hoppy bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden.Medium body and crisp carbonation. Overall, another enjoyable IPA.

Aroma is subdued sweet hops. Appearance in off-putfing murky brown but the very nice lingering carbonation makes up for it. Palate is rich. Taste is very complex with many different flavors to draw out.

Amber b0died with a tall beige head, this left rings 0f lace that measured the size 0f each swig fr0m the glass. The ar0ma was a pungent zest f0ll0wed by s0me citrus juices. It tasted quite malty, n0t very bitter in the middle but finished strnger and had an hit 0f alc0h0l. Just 0kay.

Cloudy deep amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is softish and semi dry with good fine carbonation. Sweet creamy malt with a toffee streak. Spicy and sweet piney hops. Whisper of red berry fruits. Light spicy finish. Quite a tasty beer but somewhat disjointed.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an opaque prune juice brown-orange with a foamy yellow-white head that quickly settles to a rim and coat. Some wet lacing. Aroma is quite interesting - citrus, floral hops, pepper and quite a bit o honey. Taste evinces great balance in the mouth of this imbiber. Caramel malt bedrock with a diversity of hoppy goodness with moderate bitterness that amps a bit with warming. Flavors of caramel candi, citrus and honey. Finish is dry and balanced sweet and bitter. Moderate carbonation. This beer is a dangerously drinkable IIPA.

Bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a decent off white frothy head that lingers long and leaves excellent lacing. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, sweet floral and citrus hoppiness. Taste is heavy sweet, light bitter. Average carbonation, flavors of honey, citrus, something funky like a basement filled with stale bubblegum, raisins, medium body, slick texture and a long sticky finish with overtones of grapefruit and honey.

Nice pour medium head, beer is color of honey. Grape fruit and malt are the main aromas with other orangey citrus mixed in. Starts off with the IPA taste and ends with just the ale flavor, sweet and bitter. Nice!
