4/5 rDev +1%
Pours a slight, ~1 finger snow white head. Brew is a bright lemony-yellow, pulpy in appearance, and virtually opaque.
Bright hoppy aroma: tangerine, pepper, lemon, earth, mango, all on a light biscuity malt backbone. Relatively soft.
Sweet and bitter! There's initially a slightly dank sweetness and flat, earthy maltiness, followed by waves of tropical fruit and bitter grapefruit peel.
Refreshing and sparkling feel; very lively. Feels light while drinking, but there's a long, cloying finish to it that leaves you feeling slightly full, yet wanting another sip.
This is a big, bitter DIPA, with an interesting single-hop to showcase. It ends up not being my favorite hop, carrying a little bit too much of a musty earthiness, but it's a very well-crafted ale.

Pours a fairly clear, pale golden yellow with minimal head retention.
Nose is fairly grassy with solid pine hops and some citrus notes.
This beer is all about the hop with next to no malt presence. It's got some distinctive citrus notes which give way to a hoppy bite. Grassy undertones present as well. Finishes with a nice bite. Slight boozy presence as it warms but very minimal.
Really enjoyed this beer. Nothing too crazy but a solid hoppy brew.
