Hazy pale amber in color. Nose of catty pine, light grapefruit, and mild tropical fruit. Flavor is juicy pine and light mango. Very rustic hopping with a decent malt back bone to support. Nice dry, lingering pine bitterness. Great brew.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
The nose is dominately fruity with some floral notes. The pour is light hazy orange amber with an off-white head and moderate lacing. the taste is pine, resin, tropical fruit, and strong bitter hoppy finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, while bitter hops are the primary flavor focus, there is is enough malt base to support the hoppyness. Nicely balanced.

Wonderful beer. Simply just fantastic. So much tropical fruit and pungent pine aromas. Bitter as hell but balanced. Enamel shredding ferocity as you drink this one. It’s the perfect example of a double IPA and an extremely well crafted beer. One of my new favorites. Can’t praise this one enough.
