A) poured from a 750ml bottle into a glass a rusty hazy color, a nice 1.5 finger head with astonishing lacing.

S) great bouquet, a nice sweet malt with super enticing hop aroma that smells a but like super ripe peaches

T) much like the aroma, very sweet malt balanced by the hops that retain their fruitiness but also have a nice bitterness. Wonderful finish that perfectly rides the line between sweet and bitter. Lip smacking good!

M) good thickness, nice oily feel from the hops, scary drinkable at 8.25%

O) an IIPA that reminds me a lot of Pliny but is somehow tastier. Simply put one of the best beers I have ever had the pleasure of drinking. A true craft brew.

On Tap at the brewery served in a tulip
Slightly hazy orange body capped by a fluffy white head that refuses to die.
Aroma is pungent and assertive with mixed notes of marijuana,fresh cut grass,grapefruit rind and unripe mango
Taste is amazingly like the smell, tropical notes of pineapple and guava also creep in, malt sweetness attempts a balancing act but it's all about the hops in this one
Long lingering finish with nice bitterness in the aftertaste that is welcome after the tropical fruit onslaught.
A superior DIPA that sits slightly on the sweeter side of the street.
Well done!

Pint sized can shipped from Oregon. Served cold into an imperial pint glass.

The can opens and releases a burst of super fresh hop aroma. It pours a golden orange color with reasonably good clarity for a double IPA. The sediment in the bottom adds a bit of haze. Head is thick and leaves a good bit of sticky lace.

Aroma is fresh, hoppy, citrusy, and dank. It fades after pouring it in the glass but still really nice.

Flavor is sweet up front with orange and grapefruit. Hop bitterness comes through with citrus zest and a bit of pine.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated with good balance for the style.

Overall an excellent double IPA and worth seeking out.

750ml bottle, bailey's taproom, paired with some connect 4

Sharp looking bottle - even sharper looking beer. Nice bright orange body, very healthy white foam. Pungent aromas of dank, tropical fruit, blood orange. Flavor profile follows - sticky, dank, full of tropical fruit and sugar-crusted citrus. Loved this - bought a bottle to-go.

Pours dark golden/light caramel with a good head.
Nose is dank and resinous
Taste is unreal. Great balance between malt and hops. Gives off some nice melon/citrus fruit flavors but also has a dank hoppy flavor.
Fishes crisp and clean.
Overall a great IIPA.
