Very sweet bear. Lots of foam. Very present carbonation and alcohol taste. Nice, balanced, rich sweetness. Also bitter touches of hop. Great beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle in trade from Fletche00. Nice orange color, with a medium, beige head. The lacing is thick and persistent. The aroma is mangoes, sweet potatoes, caramel, pine, and a lot of herbs. Intense bitterness, cut with a mild, grainy sweetness. Heavy body, sticky, thick, acidic, with a harsh, metallic mouthfeel. The finish is sticky and bitter, and very persistent. Overall, this is an immense, flavorful DIPA. The mouthfeel and aftertaste are very overpowering, and not very pleasant. Still, this a delicious, irresistible, and great tasting beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle pours semi-clear amber with nice finger of head. Got this one fresh. Nose is big fruity hops, orange, pineapple, lemon, citrus. Taste is tons of tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, citrus, with a very nicely balanced malt presence that holds up the hops well. Finish is bitter juicy grapefruit and pine resin, a touch of heat as it warms, lasts. Amazing DIPA.

Bottle. Pours a copper orange color with white head. Resiny, grassy, hoppy, piney aromas. Hoppy, resiny, grassy, earthy, piney flavors. Very hoppy and you can taste the alcohol a little. Really hoppy beer, quite good. Not quite 100 Percentile in my mind, but I wouldn’t mind having a few of these.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy copper with big frothy white head. Aroma is very nice pine, citrus and floral. This is some serious hop juice. Some pine and lots of citrus. Really great hop profile, some pine and lots of citrus that gives flavors of mango and other tropical fruit and grapefruit. Big caramel malt back bone balances the big hop flavor perfectly. Medium body but very crisp and easy to drink especially considering the high ABV and it has the perfect level of carbonation. This is an amazing beer. Maybe the perfect IPA.
