650 ml bottle. Pours a light copper with moderate head. Aromas of pine, toffee, and pink grapefruit. Flavors are similar with an emphasis on pine. Very good but nothing to differentiate from the offerings of a hundred other micros.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - Light orange in color with a good head and lacing. Has a real bizarre taste and after taste. Has a piney hop and bread taste up front and the back end seems more like sour milk. A few sips was enough for me.

Poured from 1 pint 6 fl oz bottle. Clear gold with white head. Aroma of sweet biscuity malt and musty funk with subtle hops. Very much the same taste with the hops coming out a bit more at the end.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy gold LOTS of white head AND lace. Unfiltered. Wheat, lemon, hop, funk, dirty laundry aroma. Taste is very hoppy. Simcoe. Flavor is thin bodied, bitter and chewable. There’s still lace ALL over my Weyerbacher glass.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orangish gold with a decent head and aromas of resin and dankness. Flavor is mostly based around this combination over a honey sweet malt presence. A very solid beer in spite of not really blowing my hair back with a new take on the style.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a slightly hazy semi orange/somewhat amber colored body with yellow highlights to help to make it fairly clear, thin white half finger foamy head that dies immediately leaving some adequate foamy sticky lacing in its wake.
The smell had some coconut in the beginning (not sure where I’m gettin’ that, but that’s what I truly got) and after it warms a bit toasted piney caramel plays in my nose.
The taste was somewhat bitter but still sweet through the malty bill that comes through, sticky caramel aftertaste, dry caramel finish.
On the palate, it sat about a medium in body, fairly sessionable - pretty much as any DIPA could be, carbonated very well for the style.
Overall, I say a pretty well done DIPA from No-Li, shout out to Breeze - In for gettin’ this in growler fills.
