Big thanks to Kevin for hooking me up with this! Pours a clear deep amber orange with a light tan head that lasts throughout the beer and laces nicely. Aroma has a really nice grapefruit note with a bit of growing pine and a caramel/toffee backing. Flavor has a good amount more of backing sweet grains with some pine hops and just a hint of grapefruit.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Caleb! Nice dark orange amber pour with nice stark white head. Aroma has notes of big citrusy oils with grapefruit and orange, lemon, leading into notes of sweet toffee and slight spice notes. Taste is nice sweet tropical fruit with some peach notes, grapefruit, leading into toffee and bready notes with a nice bitter, oily slightly piny after taste. Nice balanced double IPA, leaning towards the sweet side so reminiscent more of a barley wine. Delicious brew nonetheless.
