Orange color with an off white head, nice lacing down the glass. Sweet bready malts, and grapefruity hops in the nose. Bread, grapefruit, with a dash of alcohol on the tongue. Subtle bitterness. Nice IPA here. Kind of like an English IPA / West Coast American IPA hybrid. Tasty.

Hazy orange color with small white head. Aroma is tropical, pine needles, grapefruit, some caramel. Taste is heavy, juicy, similar to the aroma. Quite an extreme unbalanced bitterness. Smooth carbonartion. Alright but not top.

Originally rated on 3/2/15. Pours a murky orange body with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small spots of lace are left around the glass. Smell is of citrus zest, and grapefruit juice. Taste is much the same with citrus zest, grapefruit, and pine needle, there is an astringent kick thats a real turn off though. Medium body with a decent hop bite. Overall the astrigency aspect really killed a promising beer.

Pours a slightly hazy yellow/gold with an average size lasting foamy white head. Decent lacing. Big aroma of citrus, pine and floral hops with some caramel malt to balance things out. Tastes similar to the aroma but the bitter alcoholic aftertaste is slightly unbalanced.

TAP @Rimini craft attractions Aroma potente frutta gialla matura. In bocca amaro arriva subito smussato dal sapore di frutta matura che si ripropone insieme al dolce del malto che si prolunga troppo

Picked up a half-growler from Al's of Hampden. Gold color with a two finger, white, dimpled, foam head. Pineapple nose dominates, but more of a pine taste. Sharp grapefruit hoppiness, fusel notes, citrus, big pine, some biscuity malts with sweetness of apricot and pineapple. Medium+ body and smooth with some bite in the finish. A nice DIPA.

Pour is a brilliantly clear copper hue, with a frothy whit head. Nice looking beer. Aroma is big citrus: Orange, grapefruit, lemon, and also a dank, deep resinous aroma. Good stuff. Taste is more dank than citrus. Very nice!

12 ounce bottle. Hazy orange gold color. Foamy wife head. Aroma has notes of apricot, caramel apples, citrus and perfumy pine hops. Flavor is more of the same, with caramel, apples, pine needles, tropical fruit and a big dose of spicy bitter hops. Some mango and boozy notes in mid taste. Bittersweet toasted malt is eclipsed by the huge hop bill that dominates this DIPA. Dry bitter finish and aftertaste.
