3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Brew Haven festival. Musty hop, sweet fruity aroma. Clear golden with a medium off white head. Well balance sweet caramel malt and bitter hop flavor. Medium bodied, sticky. A good solid IIPA, but I’m not quite sure why everyone seems to go so ape shit over this one.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Sensoric. Deep amber with white, denied to semi-sensed, three finger head. Good head retention and perfect lacing. Aroma is mainly resinous and piney with strong citrus accent (orange, grapefruit), in the background hints of tropical fruits. Moderately balanced with some caramel and candy-like notes. Taste is medium to high bitter, rather constant thru the whole of degustation, but slightly intensifies in the end. Medium to full body, sticky and creamy texture, average carbonation, finish is medium bitter and long. In overall nice DIPA, totally focused on rather piney and resinous hops. Nice bitterness. definitely worth trying for beer and hops geeks.
