3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can at Pre-Zwanze tasting, thanks to Bruce. It pours hazy orange-amber with a small white head. The nose is fresh pine, orange, tangerine, apricot, resin and Irn Bru. The taste is crisp, orange, grapefruit, alcohol kick, grass, resin, earth and good deal of bitterness with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. A very tasty, drinkable DIPA.

Pours a dark golden in color with nice two finger white head. OK retention with nice lacing. Strong pine aroma with lots of grapefruit and some tropical fruit. Lots of pine and citrus on the tongue with some dank. Finishes dry and bitter. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Extremely smooth. Overall, an easy drinking, complex DIPA! I'll be seeking this one out again soon.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can courtesy of Rick, owner of Lardo, in Portland, OR. Colour...cloudy amber-gold with a thick white head. Nose...quite fruity and piney, all at once, with hints of pineapple and quince. Palate...very frothy and quite well balanced between the grapefruit and pine flavours. There’s a sweetness here but the overall balance is quite nice and does not allow either hop or malt to take charge.

Draft at the brewery. Pours hazy copper gold with almost no head. Smells fantastic, like sweet grapefruit candy hops. Tastes dry and tangy, like tobacco, sour apple, and citrus funky hops. Medium body and carbonation.

On tap at the abbey. Aroma a great blend of citrus, pine, and grassy hops. Flavor was a bit washed out for some reason, and the mouthfeel was thin.

The grapefruit notes come flying thru. A great IPA ! I might prefer a little more malt backbone, but there are other IPA’s for that. Domo origato Ghandi bot
