4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Yellow-orange, a bit hazy, nice lace on the side of the glass as the foam recedes. Inviting aromas, mostly citrus, some perfume/floral. Bracing bitterness up front, a hint of carmel malts, then a battering of bitter follows through. Lingering resins in the luxurious finish, like toffee covered in pine sap. Ten, even five, years ago, this would have been an incredible revelation, now it’s just an average DIPA. If there is an "average" DIPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at brewery. Fairly gentle hop aroma on a cloudy orange/golden pour. Skin of head leads into big hop bite. Sharp, short, but potent. Makes my cheeks flush. Tasty, but pungent aroma enough to make this a sipper.

It’s alright, but I like everything (except the Imperial Red) in the Seasonal Flight better.

on tap at nwipa during a new mex tap takeover. great swampy arom, ike fresh hops and not quite pine or resin but related, some toffee. and this carries to the flavor--green, expansive, enough malt to keep balance. expected oily palate but real clean, hoppy swampy finish.
