A- Pours a hazy orange hue with a 1 finger, frothy lacing that leaves very little lacing on the way down.
S- Piney, resiny, light caramel, hints of burnt toast.
T- Piney, and sappy up front followed by wheat, hints of light stone fruit and finally a resiny hop bitterness.
M- Medium bodied with ample carbonation.
D- I found this to be a very enjoyable IPA. A pine bomb that seemed unique and satisfying.

Can shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Hazy amber with a big white head. Aroma of malt, a bit of fruitiness and some citric hops. Flavor has sweetish malt, mild citric hops and a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied. Very mild but decent and enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden, big cat pee citra nose, earthy, slightly character, brings out some really nice nutty malt characteristics. Dry finish, very Alaskan other than the massive dry-hopping.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is decently hopped. Can actually smell it without bringing it to my nose. Flavor is again decently hopped with a little caramel malt sweetness after the swallow. Pretty solid little IPA here. Nothing to move to Alaska for but it’s enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can without a date code. Pours with a clear golden orange body and a large white head that leaves good lace. Aromas are of mild toasty malt, low esters, subdued citrus, resin, tropical, grassy. Mild caramel. Flavors are bitter, dry and lightly astringent in the finish. Bitter balance, with medium hop flavor (tropical, pine, resin, all light). Medium toasty, biscuity and nutty malt. Lively carbonation. Okay, but I wish there was more hop flavor and a bit less bitterness and malt character (feels like an old school IPA).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a cloudy golden-amber with head that fades to a thin ring. Somewhat dank aroma of citrus peels, pine, berries, toast, and light caramel. Tastes fairly juicy with dry citrus peels and pine mostly. Moderate caramel in the finish which is a bit too much. Mostly feel isn’t the smoothest but it’s not bad. Decent IPA.

can pour..not sure how fresh this is..but recently picked up in more northern parts..assuming this is pretty recent..pours a nice fairly medium orange with a decent amount of carbonation rising on sides..looks like a typical DIPA...nose is ok with a bunch of dried apricots..slight cat pee mixed with dishsoap..alright..mouthfeel is light bodied with taste pretty standard with the aroma..not really liking the bitterness here and this is not really my cup of tea for the style..

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draft at Caps and Taps. It pours a clear bright gold color with a white head. The aroma is a little piney and dank with berry-like hops and a significant contribution of toasty malts. The flavor is toasty with some nice fresh piney hops. A touch of florals in a bitter finish. A good IPA.
