look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.
