Pours a slightly haze golden color with a huge pillow pure white head. The head slowly settles leaving amazing lacing on the glass.

The aroma is of fresh juicy hops, slightly buddy. Good grapefruit hop twang, perhaps some pineapple. Light grass.

The malt is big and sweet. Honey malt, sugary, apricot jam and a touch of green apple. The hop flavor is not nearly as good as the nose. The hops are citrusy, mainly orange but there is some grapefruit. A bit spicy. Seems malt heavy but not grossly sweet.

Moderate to full bodied with enough prickly carbonation to keep it drinkable. Its a bit slick and sticky. Quite sweet on the palate but enough hop bitterness to keep it from being cloying. It walks a fine line though. ABV is noticable.

A big DIPA and definitely on the sweet side. There is a good hop pairing so its not gross. I would like this to be a bit drier and less sweet.

Pours bright orange in body with thin white head. Smells of big, boozy, blood orange, and candy. Tastes of wild berries, orange juice, bright candies, booze, bitterness swarms after big flavors. Medium bodied with light carbonation. A big, warming, uninspired booze bomb.

Can snagged from Tipples today plenty before the best by date. Pours a beautiful golden orange color with a big frothy, creamy head that is slightly off white. Big hop candy aroma, florals, grapefruit, tangerines, maybe some of that citra-like cat pee, with sweet caramel malts in the background. Flavor is sweet caramel and tangerines and grapefruit with a floral finish that leaves a nice lightly sweet hop flavor left on the tongue. Big and slick but not nearly as offensively syrupy as the likes of Green Bullet or even Sucks. Low to medium carbonation. I suspect that not having this perfectly fresh would make it a super heavy malt bomb, but as of today it is very drinkable and has a nice aromatic hop presence.
