3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can. Appearance: Deep golden with an orange hue, clear, with a moderate white head.
Aroma: Name of this beer is fitting, with a resinous, piney aroma dominant. Also some grass and tropical fruit notes.
Taste: Starts out with a sweet maltiness, turns to a grassy citrus, then turns into a sharp, resinous, piney bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with a moderately high carbonation.
Finish: Strong bitterness, and a dry resin stickiness on the tongue.
Overall: Definitely a hop bomb, but has a strong enough malt backbone to balance it. More well rounded than most IIPAs.

Can in Portland. Hazy orange amber pour with thin head. Aroma is pine resin - soapy almost. In a good way. Taste is crazy sharp pine hop bitterness. Quite crisp seeming for such a huge beer but I think that's mostly the bitter resinousness. Not without malt flavor but resin dominates. Good DIPA very very piney.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Little can. Pours a murky dark amber with a dense and creamy off white head. Big tangy sweet grapefruit nose. Creamy thick body with soft carb. Caramel and heavy grapefruit, very sweet but very crisp and refreshing. Bright in the back and not cloying.

Can to snifter. Clear golden pour with a frothy white head. Mix of floral hops and pine resin in the aroma. Flavor starts out nearly sour, fades out into a malty sweetness, then ends with the bitter hop punch you expect. Well hidden ABV, too.

Can from somewhere in Indiana. Way too bitter and acidic for me. I could barely finish this one and had a bad case of hop mouth afterwards.

At 103 IBUs, this starts out tasting almost unfiltered when cold but cleans up as the temperature levels out. Delicious.

This is really good but damn I didnít look at the ABV, so thatís a helluva way to start a Sunday afternoon with boiled peanuts. Big ctrus tends to mango too. Bready malts are big but not overly sweet, Long citrus rind bitterness at the finish. Its big but balanced, lots o hops, lots o malt and surprisingly drinkable til you feel that ABV catch up to you.
