Bottle from bhensonb. Pours cloudy orange with a decent off-white head and a citrus and toffee aroma. There is a delicious caramel malt flavor with a subtle hop bitterness that has a pineapple aftertaste. This is a nice DIPA with less sweetness and a more varied flavor than many others.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is in the face hops, citrus, and pine. Exceedingly pleasant, I immediately want to sip it. Appearance is pale yellow, light carbonation. Taste is an upfront hit of bitterness, but mellows quickly and has a lingering complexity. Overall one of my favorite amongst the IPAs.

For being bright yellow this is a big beer, pours with no head taste is dense oily grapefruit citrusy lemon peel. Green grassy, very hoppy but pretty well balanced with a lot of malt. A little alcoholic once warmer but very good
