Pours a dark orange amber with a creamy off white head. The aroma is just as described, resin and maybe some pine. The taste is very hoppy with a very enjoyable balance of malt and hop bitterness. If I nitpick, I could say that the body is just a tad lighter than I’d like for this type of beer, but there aren’t too many mistakes here. A deliciously formidable Imperial IPA.

Very sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, pine, and resin. Medium body. Oily, slick texture. Average carbonation. Hop, malt, resin finish is lightly sweet and medium bitter. 9.1%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a can into a tulip glass. Appearance is a hazy copper with a half-finger width head of creamy white foam. Head retention is acceptable. I get some resinous aromas, but primarily I get a woody, vanilla scent. Bitterness is definitely dry and resinous in the taste. Drying on the back of the tongue. A rush of dank bitterness attacks tongue post-swallow. Long, dry finish. Full, sticky mouthfeel. This beer is so sticky, it’s almost chewy. I do like the can. I like this brewery’s label/can art.

Pours darker than expected.. Nice and grapefruit, sweet with a little peach or apricot. Nice alternative to hopslam

Pours dark orange with a thin white head, aroma is kinda weak for a DIPA,grassy hops and a bit of malt. Taste very grassy as well with some pine and yes resin, bitter yes but it doesn’t seem to be 103 IBUs. Good but a bit offf for the style.
