Pours golden orange with a white frothy head. Aroma of gritty pungent hops. Taste is hoppy right from the start. I expected it to be very unbalanced towards hops, but it actually is incredibly balanced. The beer finishes on nice orange citrus notes. Mouthfeel Is smooth and finishes dry.

Slim can, Golden color. Full head that dissipated some. Gigantic citrus/floral hop aroma. I thought this was canned hop flowers at first the aroma was so potent. Heavy bitter. Slight sticky texture. Grapefruit hop flavors. Resin is a good name.

This is an excellent, high quality IPA. The palate is full and rich, the aroma is full of hops and pine, and the flavor is slightly sweet and nicely bitter. It is similar in character to the Bells Hopslam and much more readily available. This is definitely worth trying if you have the chance.

On tap at O’riley & Conway, pours a golden amber with a thick white head and sticky lacing in the glass, the aroma is of dank wet hops and malt, the flavor punches you in the face with the hops, almost too dank and dark for my liking, was very sticky and thick, mouthfeel was too sticky and thick for myself, nothing special.

12oz skinny can from Downer Wine And Spirits. Pours a deep amber color with a big white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is hoppy, pine, tropical fruit, pineapple maybe. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bready malt, cereal, hoppy, onion, summit hops, some pine, with a clean, bitter finish. A very tasty beer, but only an average DIPA in my opinion.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy gold-amber color with a nice short head. Leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma is all hop. It smells like a hop plant, it’s that fresh smelling. It overpowers everything else except the alcohol. Alcohol comes through.on the nose. The taste is bitter but subtly. It’s not overt. There is also a sweetness that I cannot identify. A general oiliness is present.on the tongue. This beer is really good.

Can at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, Norra Vallgatan
Cloudy light amber - orange color. Malt and caramel aroma, light puke, no hop. The malt and caramel flavor is quite good; the hop provides some resiny and citrusy character (bitter oranges); moderate residual sweetness. Long and strong final; some fruits in the final too, appreciated.
Solid IIPA, without shining.
