This brew poured out as a muddy looking brownish copper color with an off white head on top. The smell of the beer was full of hoppy aromas and hints of sweet malt. The taste of the beer gives off a healthy amount of hop bitterness that gives off essence of pine and grapefruit. The mouthfeel of this beer is on the thicker side, slightly oily with a moderate carbonation level. Overall this is a pretty solid beer, I can't find too much to complain about other than it's appearance. Still very drinkable and worth trying.

Reviewed from notes.

A. Amber with orange highlights, one finger of cream colored head that sticks around for a minute or so and leaves behind some decent lacing.

S, T. Heavy sweet caramel malt, pine resin bite and floral / herbal garnishes all over the place. A very malt-forward IPA.

M. Lightly carbonated, heavier side of medium thickness.

For my tastes in an IPA, this one is far too unbalanced towards sweetness...but that's just my opinion. If you like IPAs to be really sweet, than you should try this one.

Bottle into a pilsner.

An orange hazy beer with an orange-ish head that faded quickly & left heavy lacing.

Orange & cardamom in the nose and all over the body. Slightly thinner in flavor & mouthfeel than many DIPAs, but overall a very drinkable beer with a unique but pleasant taste & an interesting finish. Oh, and the hops...piny, prickly and satisfyingly sharp, a DIPA worth seeking out.

Pours a dark orange with a 1 finger off white head fading quickly leaving decent lacing.

Smells of slight caramel and equal balance of pine and floral hops.

Starts out with a little floral bitterness. A bit of sweet caramel takes over in the middle. Finishes slightly bitter with some pine hops.

Mouthfeel is a touch on the light side with medium carbonation.

Not really that great. A bit thin and too sweet for a DIPA.

Served in a Half Acre tulip.

A- Nice caramel with a 2 finger off-white head. Lots of spotty lacing remain on the glass.

S- Biscuit and some sweet malts. Lots of pine and floral hop aromas.

T- Nice caramel malt body with slight bready/biscuity taste. Actually get some slight citrus notes, but still dominated by spicy,herbal, pine hop bitterness.

M- Medium body and carbonation. Although this beer is fairly bitter it doesn't have a dry finish or lingering aftertaste.

O- This beer grows on you as you drink it. First sip wasn't too impressed, but after a few drinks I noticed this beer is a little more balanced than first thought.
