Sampled in a 6 pack. The hops were a little rough on this one. The alcohol is strong on this one as well. Overall, I had higher expectations for this one but it is still decent.

Pours a cloundy orange with small head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, pine, lemon and hops. Taste follows the nose with some sweetness. The balance of hops and sweetness is very good. A nice semi sweet hops bitterness that lingers a light year in the finish. A very solid DIPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear gold colour with an aroma similar to the hop wallop by victory. It does have a grassy resin flavour to it with a hint of something else i cant pin down. I guess its typical of the stuff coming out of the US today although im not a big fan.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: orange with honey hues. Pithy head is fluffy, clumpy, and patchy. Rests with a gentle haze. Swirls blotchy with sticky lace and a patchy blanket.
Nose: grapefruit, lovely grapefruit – white mostly with some yellow. zest, skin, and lemon. Grapefruit pulp and juice – freshly squeezed. Pine and spearmint in the back. Key lime is a subtle suggestion. Seviche finish of fresh citrus juices amidst sea breeze essence.
Palate: grapefruit, key lime, and lemon hits hard and fast, leading into pine needles and hop resins. Pith and rind – take above fruits and rind away. Deliciously simple.
Final Thoughts: not overly complex but the flavors were bright, rambunctious, and eager to please.

Lightly carbonated, rusty cloudy golden appearance, smells of citrus and grass,. Full of flavor with hints of citrus especially grapefruit, nice amount of bitterness of course, but not astringent. Long finish after the swallow. If you weren’t bitter before you will be after this brew, but in a a very nice way.
Party on I mean drink on Garth.
