Refrigerated can from JoePessie. Pours deep copper with nice off-white head. Some lacing, medium body, resinous texture, medium carbonation and pine aroma. Taste is citrus, lots of pine, and bitter hop finish. Not balanced, too much pine, won’t be seeking out.

Very good drinking DIPA, with smooth understated carbonation, much citrus flavour. Golden colour. Hops like a 1.5 ipa than a dipa. The citrus is in the nose.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Pawola22 - thanks, dude! Sort of an oily, glassy dark orange pour, with less than impressive carbonation. Medium head, not too much lacing. Nose is sharp and grassy, with a dose of sweet booziness late. Taste is a bit hot and heavy on the faded malts, with thin sweetness an echo of once-fresh hops.

12oz can from emelius. Dirty and hazy amber, Nice aroma of resin hops but a little sharp, citrus undertone with a strong malt backbone. Moderate body and carbonation, little bit of initial sweetness but becomes bitter and grows more so. Leaves a nice blend of resin hops and malt. Good.
