Batch 211/12/13. Pours a hazy dark orange color with a finger head that goes away slowly. Smells of resinous pine, pineapple, dank, tropical fruits, mango, carmel, butterscotch, and breadiness. Taste starts with tons of resinous pine and tropical fruits, very dry to start. Then get a buttery biscuit taste, as well as candy-like sweetness, pineapple, guava. Really surprising malt backbone. Then the finish is tons of pineapple and guava, mango, orange peel, a resinous pine or grass quality, buttery biscuit, more sugary sweetness. Very dry finish. Almost like a fruit salad. High medium body with an oily, creamy, and crisp mouthfeel. This is a ridiculously balanced and delicious double ipa. The hop profile is intense and complex and the malts and sugars complement the hops very well. Outstanding beer when it’s fresh.

Bottle poured into a Pipeworks bell tulip. Attractive beer, hazy golden-amber color with a full inch of foamy, beige head that sank to a thick cap and left gobs of lace on the glass. I could smell the fresh hop goodness as soon as I cracked the cap on this one. Pithy citrus and pine, underripe tropical fruits, with a sugar cookie malt base. More of this in the taste, orange pith and zest, strong, oily bitterness, pine resin, green pineapple rind, sugary, bready malt backbone bringing in good balance, but still leaving the hop profile firmly in charge. Vegetal bitterness lasted right into the aftertaste. Medium body, unctuous mouthfeel, moderate and appropriate carbonation. This was a very nicely done DIPA.
