3.98/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A - Pours a golden orange with a one-finger foamy white head. Heavy sticky lacing.

S - Aroma of citrus, pine, and floral hops.

T - Starts with a nice amount of sweetness followed by a resinous piney hop punch. There is a nice amount of orange rind and grapefruit present in the flavor. Finish has a light cracker malt taste with a lingering ho bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Smooth creamy mouthfeel.

O - Another nice beer from Odd Side. Recommnded for anyone looking for a DIPA on the bitter side.

3.54/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a tulip glass

A - It is amber bodied with golden highlights. It is topped with four inches of beige head.

S - When I first opened it I noticed grapefruit and pine. Then I got that candy corn smell I have been noticing in some DIPA's. The pine seems to dominate though.

T - I get that same weird combination. I really need to figure out why I get this buttery, candy corn flavor and smell.

M - Medium

O - The sweetness is not as bad as War Mullet and Citra Ninja for me. This is a decent beer, but I need to figure out what is creating this weird sensory perception for me.
