3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of over ripe mango, papaya, apricot, very evened out and green/spruce like, not super on and not very tropical, a bit boozy. Taste very unlike other IPAs, orange marmalade feel like a barley wine with nice overripe fruits and a earthy citrus touch to it, small booze.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden, ample foamy white head. Insanely resinous, pine, dank umami. Some citrus, much honey. Really similar to smelling a ziploc full of dried citra/mosaic. Character is fairly bitter, oily, light sweetness. Heavier body, decently upfront alcohol. Long finish. Very interesting, tastes like the essence of what dry hop pellets smell like.
