bomber. Clearish straw golden w/ average slight-off-white head. Smells like a bag of hop buds; it really smells sticky & oily. Taste is fuckin’ huge. A tongue burst of bitterness (both citrus & herbal/pine) then a somewhat sweet lightly bubbly finish. Tongue continues to tingle. An incredibly well done DIPA of few peers. $5, yep five.

Draft at public house in Ghent. So happy to have stumbled back across this! Been a few years. Aroma is a beautiful floral tropical fruit hops and a candy sweetness. Thick fleshy fruit tropical fruit hops in the flavor. Light to medium in body with a long lingering tropical fruit hops. Amazing IPA! Definitely thanks to alpines contribution.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer pours a very clear golden color with a large white head, and the aroma blends citrus and resin hops with some light biscuity notes. The taste is mildly bitter and mildly sweet with more of the bitterness becoming momentarily pronounced in the aftertaste. The palate fuses a slick texture, medium-light body, and an average carbonation.

On Tap at the River Room, Whole Foods, Boise Slightly hazy golden orange with a thin fleeting of white head. Classic pungent hop bitter aroma. Hop forward flavors lots of citrus and pine flavors. The Simcoe really makes it I think. A little thick on the palate and a pleasant lingering bite. A hefty sipper .

On tap at Rozi’s. $14 growler. Smell is very dank, has green flash written all over it from the begining. Nice golden color, solid off white head. Flavor is more dank hops, weed, grass, resin. There is a hint if new belgiums fruitiness. Some malt in there and some savory garlic-food thing. Nice, good and drinkable.
