Big thanks to wdeck9 for adding this as an extra.

Poured from can into a snifter.

A: Pours a deep hazy orange, almost cloudy. Creamy white head is very thin and fades to almost nothing immediately. Lots of sticky white lacing throughout though.

S: Loads of citrus, predominantly grapefruit and pineapple.

T: Hints of grapefruit flavor right away, with a faint piney bitterness at the back end. Very balanced sweetness/bitterness.

M: A sticky, creamy texture, with only faint carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden.

O: A tasty Brew, but doesn't really stand out as very memorable. Very drinkable, but it lacks that dry bitter bite I look for in my DIPAs. I'd definitely give it another shot though if given the chance.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 16oz tall boy into a standard pint glass

A - pours a brilliant medium orange with a two and a half finger head thats dark eggshell in color. The head is very foamy and leaves a large amount of lacing.

S - piney, spicy and very heavy on the tropical hop notes. Not much in malts or alcohol detected.

T - very hop forward as expected. Tons of pine throughout, especially in the late bitterness. Some tropical profiles build in mid palate but are overshadowed by the pine. A slightly coarse bitterness stays with you for a while, whichis heavy pine.

M - on the heavier side of light. Slightly creamy.

D - fairly low for me. The pine overpowers everything, especially in the bitterness making it a longer drink than it should be.

Overall, a pretty good beer. The visuals were the best part of this beer. I wish there was a little more hop flavor to tear down the immense amount of pine. I found the hop flavor and bitterness is somewhat one dimensional.
