On tap at brewpub this years new batch released yesterday. This was delicious! Big pungent aroma and great balance flavors of bitter hops and malted sweetness but not overly so. Great body and overall my favorite beer from this brewery.

Pours deep amber with medium offwhite head. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, caramel, and a little breadiness. Taste is much of the same with slick bready caramel up front that quickly turns to citrus and huge grapefruit. Finish is bone dry and has a lingering bitterness.

Pour from 22 0cz. bomber. Pours a dark copper orange with a two finger off white head which fades to nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus (A lot of orange and some grapefruit), pine, tropical fruits (pineapple and nice mango notes), sweet malts, and some light caramel. Taste is of citrus (a lot of orange), pine resin, sweet bready malts, caramel, and a little booze. Has a medium-full body and a creamy, slightly chewy, semi dry, pretty bitter, but still well balanced finish. Overall, a decent DIPA that is more of a East Coast style then a true west coast style, that could hide its abv a little better.

22oz bomber pours clear copper with a near white head of foam. The aroma has a mix of thick malts, resiny hops, a bit of grapefruit and a bit of sweet citrus hard candy. The taste delivers plenty of resiny hop goodness in the form of firm pine hops and slivers of grapefruit and tangelo citrus hops. It has both resiny bitter hops and smooth hop flavor. Nice stuff.
