650ml bottle (9.48% ABV) pours a deep amber color with 2 fingers of light beige head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine and grapefruit with some caramel and light roasted grains. Taste is a pine and grapefruit hop bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness finishing with light roasted grains. Full bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a bold tasting DIPA that is sure to satisfy the needs of most hop lovers out there. Balanced hops and malts. Recommended.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hazy orange amber with a small beige head. Aroma is very strong, with resinous hops and big caramel malts. Flavour is robust, with loads of resinous hops upfront followed by just enough dry caramel malt. Damn, this is great - robust and balanced, while being a kick in the face all the same. Excellent.
