For me the alcohol taste was too present. I love good DIPA where you can taste the hops, malt, and bitter finish but compared to many of the great ones I have had his one had too much alcohol flavor compared to those other characters. Great brew still but not quite up there with some of the other truly world class ipa

To me just an okay beer, Permanent Funeral is a much better beer, just an okay IPA.

Special thanks to ARex and his wife for snagging this delicious treat.

A - An absolutely fantastic looking beer. Towering bone white head pours 2-3 fingers high with outstanding retention and lace.

S - Huge fresh orange note with edges of lemon.

T - Fantastic, juicy fresh-squeezed orange flavor with a supporting cast of of bitter wax, thyme and basil.

M - Medium-light body. Deliciously smooth.

O - A fruit-forward take on the style that is surprisingly light and refreshing.
