Nice golden filtered body. Thin lacey white head.

Resiny honey smells flow from this beer hints of citrus.

More toward the sweet honey taste complementend by a grapefruit bite. The resiny tastes are present.

Really good balanced dipa. A touch of alcohol burn, but very well incorporated. Nice smooth body. Reminicent of hopslam and doble trouble for me.

Poured into a New Belgium snifter

A - A stunning golden amber, perfectly transparent, decent head and lacing almost all the way down the glass

S - Papaya, oakie, pineapple, jasmine blossom, sweet hop, sweet malt and a citrus resin

T - Really sweet all the way through with papaya, pineapple, jasmine. The middle is sticky sweet malt and an explosion of sticky citrus bitter resin at the end and very oakie

M - Big, sticky, bubbly and smooth

D - Very pleasing all the way from the sip to the swallow. Easy to medium drinkability

Final thought - This and Elder are my favorite IPA styles by far. This one I think take the cake and I am so glad they finally started bottling it.

Great looking head and lacing. Clear orange/yellow color. Slightly below average carbonation.

Smells really hoppy. Pine trees and a lot of fruit and some spring flowers.

Tastes really good. There is some malty sweetness to balance the aggressive hops in the body, then a little sweetness, then a slight dryness and bitterness in the aftertaste. I think that's likely caused by a combination of the alcohol and the hops.

Extremely, extremely drinkable for the ABV. The malts cover up the alcohol. Watch out! You can down it like a normal IPA.

A- pours orangish yellow with a nice two finger head. A little hazy.
S- a lot of pine, tropical and citrus fruits, some caramel
T- sweet tropical fruit, thick pine, biscuit, buttery biscuit, woody, caramel, very nice creamy texture.
O- got this in a trade and im so glad I did, this is packed with piney hops and delicious fruit, the texture is very smooth, there no bitter after taste. This beer is very very well done, amazing balance.
