4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Über. Pours bright golden with medium lacey head. Aroma is big tart and fruity hops. Taste is huge hops: juicy, floral, and piney with a bitterness that lasts through the finish. Light biscuity body that offers no resistance to the hop parade here. Deceptive, the 9% sneaks up on you as this is so easy drinking. The hops are mastered here, the best-in-class DIPAs have a bit more going with their malts.

Super indeed...fantastic aroma leads to a drink of earthy resinous pine forest. Also, a sticky candy like sweetness perfectly balances the hoppy bitterness. Finishes clean and leaves a lacing covering the glass top to bottom. Awesome.
