Pours hazy blonde with a fine white head. Nose is bitter hops and a little malt and fruit. Hops shine bitter and big on the front but give way to a rich and slightly earthy pale malt on the back. Finish is fairly quick. Well balanced and good.

Bottle. A luscious full bodied IPA packed with hops and their bitter concoctions. Slight notes of floral, spice and fruit although more so in the nose. Pretty good for 7.5%; the only give away would be the bouquet of hops used. I think they pulled it off well.

Body is moderate medium, texture is soft, carbonation is medium.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to Maxi... without him knowing. Had very low expectations after having a bunch of very mediocre pizza port ipa’s and apa’s last week. But this one? Cannot follow any of the ratings i’ve read so far: This is the dankest shit i’ve ever smelled in a beer! Fresh pot-weed-marijuana, herbs, pine, light grass. Smells like laughing at nothing, getting red eyes and having the munchies. The pour is a clear golden orange with a big, white head. Taste is pretty dry, but still with a light pale/caramel malty sweetness, medium bitterness. Average to high carbonation and an oily body.

Straw color pour with a large white head and minor lacing. Aroma has strong hop presence, clean and refreshing with pine and grass. Medium bitter, some sweetness, fair balance. Refreshing and cleansing drink. Light/thin body, juicy after feel in mouth.

Tasted during our DIPA shootout. Came second to last. Surprisingly light for a DIPA, which is a good thibg. Slightly harsh bitterness, not my kind of bitter flavor. I understand this beer but don’t particularly like it.
