Had on tap. Pour is golden with a nice head. Aroma appeared to be mostly citrus, but was overpowered by other smells in the establishment. Light in body with lots of carbonation. Flavor is very happy, but not overly bitter. Floral and citrus dominate with a bit of malt sweetness, but not quite enough to balance perfectly.

Lightly hazy, amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, resin, sweeter honey, caramel malts, citrus, and light alcohol. Taste of citrus, pine resin, some caramel, spicy hop finish.

Finally rating this. Huge resiny dipa with tons of spruce and citrus rind. Bitter and sweet with caramel malts. Balanced in your traditional huge dipa of 5 years ago. Good beer.

32oz growler tasted at Natifest. Mostly clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Awesome big grassy hop aroma, light pine, grapefruit citrus. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Light spiciness. Great moderate to bigger bitter taste. Light zest. Light sweet taste. More dry finish. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Awesome big assertive piney citrusy resiny IPA. My kind of stuff. Stand-out DIPA.

Howler to taster at NatiFest (shared by John). Looks good; a very slightly hazy golden orange with foamy white head. Smells and tastes nice and hoppy with loads of citrus and a mildly sweet backbone. Pleasantly smooth on the palate. A good DIPA.

Growler thanks to a guy named John at NF14 - cat urine nose. Malty backbone. Solid but not original. Aftertaste is different though.

a terrific dipa with a bunch of hop funk and flavor; very drinkable, almost tasted like some of my favorite wet-hopped ipas, though apparently it’s not.

Can from Nick thanks! From the can. Aroma of dank hops, tropical fruit, and malt sweetness. Taste is dank, bitter, malt and alcohol not pronounced. Easy drinking for a double. Kinda like heady’s little bro.

Draft at Birch Hill Tavern. Pours hazy apricot color with pretty, large-bubbled head. Aroma is very pleasant with dank hops, light tropical fruit, and citrus peel--nothing out of the ordinary but fresh and juicy and smellable. Taste is much drier and aggressive, in the direction of Heady in terms of pine and sweet malts but dialed back, with sweet orange and mango. Very drinkable for the ABV. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[Can (12oz) c/o Glouglouburp] Pours a slightly hazy gold with some sediment and a large long-lasting frothy white head. Lacing on the glass. Really nice aroma of citrus hops & piney hops, a bit resiny as well and with tropical fruit. Flavour is also pleasant, lots of citrusy and fruity hops, nice and easy to drink a as well for a DIPA. Alcohol is well hidden. Long bitter finish. Medium bodied. A well made, enjoyable DIPA, well done.
