Big hops, tons of pink grapefruit, not overpowering. Perfect balance. On the lighter side for being a big beer. Long finish, amazing.

This is a well balanced DIPA, just the right citrus note, not too bitter, great malt backbone. Very good!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a bright orange gold. Itís quite hazy. The head is about medium sized and pure white. Seems fairly sticky. Aroma is big on tangerine rind and pine resin. It gets a touch acetone-ish, some sort of harsh hop note that comes up in DIPAs, at times. Pineapple, a bit floral. Mildly grassy. Just a touch of malt sweetness and booze. Unfortunately, the taste is harsher and loses a lot of what delicacy was present in the aroma. Itís relatively dry - thereís still a good dose of simple malt sweetness in there. Lots of pine resin and citrus rind. A dose of booze. The bitterness is pretty high and drowns out the hop flavor too much for my liking. Mouthfeel is fairly harsh. Pretty light for the abv. Some definite hop oiliness and body from the malt. Itís a pretty good DIPA, but it feels somewhat dated. This beer doesnít have the massive wave of complex hoppiness in the taste, and while the aroma is enjoyable, itís still not juicy like the top examples of the style. Thereís nothing really wrong with the beer, given the abv, but I was expecting more. Still, Iím quite happy to try it.

Pours orange gold with a thick white head and nice legs on the glass. Aroma is fresh cut tropical fruit, pineapple, citrus, pine, and hay. The taste is pineapple, mango, biscuit, pine, and wild flowers. Luscious mouthfeel. Solid.

Bottle to glass. Pours a clear light amber color with a thin off white head. Aroma is citrusy, fleshy fruits, slightly floral, sweet. Flavor is a good mix of fruity sweetness and a mild bitterness. Easily drinkable with a lingering fruitiness. Very tasty
