Pours into an impy pint glass a tangerine color with a lacey half finger bone white head atop.Drunken fruits in the nose along with notes of resin,the sweetness is as big as the hops.A good shot of pine and leafy hops but the sugary sweetness makes its presence known as well making for a hoppy but also sugary sweet DIPA.It's not bad but it's par for the course for too many of the style....in my opinion.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a chill-hazed bronze/amber with 2 fingers of pearl colored head. Great lacing & head retention

S: Pineapple, breadyness, mangoes

T: Follows the nose, grapefruit as well, a little bit of pear as well. More grapefruit, a touch of melon & pear as this warms. More grapefruit & pineapple in the finish, along with woody dryness

MF: Medium bodied, lively carbonation, good balance

Drinks pretty easy, one of the better beers I've had from these guys
