(Within ~1 month of bottle date) Poured into tulip glass, initially about 1/2" head that reduced to 1/4" with some soapy lacing. Color is a hazy, deep orange/red. Smells- dank hops and resin, grapefruit, pineapple. Taste- bready malts, resinous hops, some tropical fruit and alcohol warmth in the finish. Overall a decent DIPA, although it didn't bowl me over.

Cloudy orange in color with a short head. Nice lace develops during the session. Aroma is typical citrus and hop centric. Caramel, pine, grapefruits, mango, mild alcohol, and some floral and earthy hop bitterness round out the flavor profile. Crisp throughout. Dry finish. A slower sipping beer but nicely refreshing.

A delicious ,bitter-smooth, hit-the-spot, relaxing brew. The aroma of hops emanates from its bottle's nozzle, and its taste is inviting and pleasant. After its over, the taste lingers on the tastes buds with a good after taste. It is a beer to remember and to try again.

pours a cloudy, golden color. One finger from head that is lacking retention. Nutty citrusy floral flavor. a Bready citric aroma and A slick somewhat chewy mouthful. the bitterness in thIs beer stands out, and it is not overpowering. Overall I must say this is enjoyable brew.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Starts off looking nice, with a very forward hop aroma. Then you taste it and it's a very, very one dimensional flavor. Very bitter hops and very unflattering booze. Reminds me more of an over the top triple IPA, but with very little depth in flavor.
