Nice. Poured from bottle to a round glass. Very nice copper color, clear in the light. The nose is bread like and a hint of alcohol. The head was creamy…thick when poured and thinned out with some lacing on the glass. The taste was powerful, but not mind blowing. Hoppy, floral notes...herbs and some spiciness and again a taste of alcohol. Very clean, but long lasting mouth feel with a dry finish.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

a clean amber pour with 2 fingers of foamy head. citrusy sweet smell, pine, caramel, and grass notes. a sweet malty DIPA with a heavy booze kick. tasty bitterness fights the sugary backbone from the malt and confuses the hell out of my palate. the alcohol taste is VERY strong in this one. medium body with a good amount of carbonation, alcohol warmth is very present. a pretty good DIPA but a bit too strong in the booze flavor and weak in the hop department for something called hop juice!

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A half finger of head on a cloudy, deep copper colored body.
The aroma is a sharp lemon, orange and pinewood. It's a nice combination.
The taste has a malty sweetness undercurrent with a dry strong bitterness dominating the profile.
The texture is a little fizzy, moderate carbonation and medium body.
A solid DIPA.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Reviewed from notes.

A- Finger and a half white creamy head. Nice retention. Little lacing. Semi-cloudy copper color.

S- Big, citrusy hops. Not much else.

T- Metallic tang of bitterness. Punch in the taste buds. Balance isn't there.

M- Heavy carbonation and fluffy feel. Dry.

O- Nothing really terrible, but not a good beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Bottle poured into a tulip glass

Pours a dark golden color with a decently robust slightly off white head.

Smell is dominated by carmel sweetness and a slightly oily piney smell

Taste also centers around the sweetness. Slightly oily pine hop bitterness but not enough punch for a DIPA.

My first try from this brewery and left a little underwhelmed. Bottle was new to the shop so I don't think I can blame on age. Seeing the reviews I don't think it is a brewery I will revisit.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: clear golden copper in color. Forms a moderate off white head that reduces to a thin surface coating. Leaves some moderate lacing.

S: aroma is a fairly strong blend of pine, citrus, and alcohol.

T: taste is fairly malty; moderately sweet caramel malt followed by orange, candied orange rind, light grapefruit bitterness, and pine. Slightly earthy and more sweetness on the finish.

M : Medium bodied, but sweet with a slight syrupiness. Appropriate carbonation. Mild to moderate bitterness on the finish.

O: a decent DIPA, though far too sweet for my tastes.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a nice golden slightly orange with a frothy white head the dissipates relatively quickly but laces nicely. Smell is hops and malty sweetness. Taste is crisp, some hoppiness but not your average pine or citrus, more on the bitter end. Mouthfeel is pretty average, not too thick not too thin, really nothing outstanding but nothing lacking either. Overall a pretty decent DIPA but nothing exceptional, but for the price it's a nice higher ABV beer that goes with my spicy dinner nicely.
