Deep amber red pour. Bready and pine in the nose. Sharp flavor of citrus and pine balanced out bready with sweet cocktail cherry. Wonderful palate and medium body. The sweetness and slight stickiness lingers.

Level 42 Bottleshare. Thanks to Fergus for the can. Lightly hazy amber beer, good pale tan head. Smooth dry palate, reasonable fine carbonation. Soft malts, mildly sweet, a little oxidised tasting caramel. Mild hop spice and ripe fruits, especially orange and tangerine. Light dry spicy finish. Nothing special. Bring back the DIPA!

randy1969 (112) - Marengo, Illinois, USA - DEC 24, 2017
Aromas of citrus, spruce, and floral hops, with bready malt, and cherry. Color of deep amber almost ruby red body and a thick puffy off-white head. The head stops rising at about an inch high and has serious retention. Taste brings more malty sweetness to counter the strong citrus aroma. The hop flavor is dank and the pine is sharp and bitter. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation with a sticky texture

koleminer20 (4171) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 1, 2017
From notes. Enjoyed this one with the Ann Arbor crew at a tasting at Corbet’s house on November 18. 16 oz can. The pour is a darker red color with a thick and pillowy off white head that falls down to a thinner cap and film with a bunch of soapy lace left behind. The aroma is pretty decent. It’s surprisingly bitter. There is a decent caramel sweetness but the earthy hops underneath it are pretty bitter. There is a bit of resin on the finish. The flavor is much of the same. There is a light caramel and sweetness up front with a growing piney resin and earthy hop bitterness on the back end. This one is pretty interesting throughout, but not too bad. The mouth feel is medium bodied with a softer carbonation and a lingering sweet malt and bitter hop finish. Not too shabby. 6 4 6 4 14
