Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy orange with thick white head that lasts leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is pine and fruity hop. Medium mouthfeel with bitter pine hop and light dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; Pour is murky gold, with a one finger, fine bubbled off white head into this glass. Retention is average here, with some light lacing present. This is a one month old bottle, for what that is worth. Anyway - The nose has that feeling that you get from something like the stone best before series. But more subdued, I suppose. Dank hop notes of grass and floral, sticky malts, and some booze, frankly. The flavor profile provides an initial bittering dank hop notes, caramel notes, sweet breads, and a hint of booze, once again. It frankly meshes poorly - probably batch issues. Whatever.

Bottle share thanks to Homer321. Mild hazy orange color. Citrus hop yummy flavor and sweet malt. Pretty malty flavor, nice hop flavor but not as overwhelming as hops, mild bitterness.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A: Orange/copper with a nice head that lingers a bit, some nice lacing as well.
S: Really nice dank citrus notes upfront with some orange and pine. Really amazing smell.
T: Same as the smell a lot of citrus, pine, and some dankness . An easy to drink beer that I could drink all the time.
M: A perfect amount of carbonation. Slight alcohol taste but not overpowering, and not overly sweet like I like it.
O: Really enjoy this beer, have had it a few times now and always enjoy it. Love all the DIPA’s.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
An enjoyable, strong IPA that has a somewhat hot, pleasant aroma of citrus and sweet fruit. Medium-bodied, with a lingering, somewhat pithy, sweetness. Good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy golden color with a big white head of persistent foam that laces the glass nicely. Aroma of grapefruit and pineapple juice with some grassy and mild biscuit scents. Taste is at first sweet with some caramel and tropical fruit juices, followed by grapefruit and citrus flavors and then some dankness. Aftertaste has some spicy alcohol and a fair amount of grassy and piney bitterness. Finishes dry with lingering bitter. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Bright but well integrated flavors and a big but smooth bitterness.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
22oz bomber Batch: 305/308/309 -- Pours a hazy golden with white head. Aroma is a strong, clean citrus. Hints of lime, lychee, and peach. One of the most pleasant smelling beers I’ve had the chance to experience. Flavor is a simple malt backbone that lets the hop flavor dominate. Citrusy and sweet. Overall, I really like this brew. A very nice IPA I would love to have again.
