Enjoyed the wide variety of fruit, citrus, melon and berry along with the significant bitterness and the warmth. Maybe a little too sweet, but certainly hard to balance everything. Would drink again.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance was orange copper gold with creamy lasting whitish 2 finger head, lacing throughout glass. Aromas are sweet caramel honey malts with soft pine, herbs and spice and citrus fruits. Taste was a thing of beauty with sweet malty backbone then peach, berry, cherry, orange spicey hops, but not overpowering. Palate was silky creamy CO2 with balanced body, then long fruity sweet slightly dryish finish. Wonderful.

Bottle - pours clear copper with offwhite head and nice lacing. Nose is spruce, pine and grapefruit. Flavor adds caramel. Quite bitter with some sweetness. Boring for style but could be due to be due to the warm beer. Dry finish.

Pours golden with large white head. Great citrus nose, lots of grapefruit. Palate has good bitterness, but way too much sweetness. Beer gets somewhat syrupy, an issue with many DIPAs this heavy that really frustrates me.
