4.5/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a bomber to a pint glass

Appearance: Crystal clear, straw gold with small amounts of carbonation and tiny bubbles forming a thinner white head.

Smell: Wet hop resins, pine, some biscuit and pepper

Flavor: Potent spice and what, at first, appears to be very strong hop bitterness. The hops are sublimely balanced with sweetness from the malt, and it is hard to decide which is winning until the hop-dominated finish. Lots of peppery spice go along with this beer.

MF: Still a little abrasive and doesn't have a lot of the body some DIPAs have, but very, very tasty.

4.28/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A - poured a slightly Hazey golden almost orange body with 3/4 finger loose white head with large bubbles. Head was fleeting lasting only seconds, but left decent lacing.

S - massive hops, dominated by piney citrusy and grapefruit notes. Strong sweet and sticky malt character wafts through, with a slight fruityness.

T - very fresh tasting example, hop dominant up front, less piney as the nose more of a citrusy herbal tea flavor. Malt provides a very strong body and sweetness to keep the hops in check. Finishes less bitter than I expected, and actually a little sweeter than I would prefer.

M - thick n syrupy for the style, very stone-ish in its feel and is just delightful.

O - overall, as expected very enjoyable stone quality. Great fresh hop nose and flavor with a sticky and sweet body. Finish is clean but a little sweet and less bitter than I would expect. Great example of the style only thing i wish is it would be a little more attenuated.
