22oz non-dated bottle, picked up in Boulder Co.

Pours hazy, dark gold with an inch-plus head of white. A solid skim coat for the duration with plenty of tattered lacing.

Aromatics lead off with citrus and pine. Hints of peach, mango, and apricot. Not very pungent or floral, or perhaps just faded.

Medium bodied with a crisp, tacky mouthfeel.

Bright citrus fruit starts the palate. Heavy on the mango and apricot with shades of melon and tangerine. Light malt and drying with low bitterness.

Finishes with lingering tropical hops, a trace of biscuity malt and, and a faint bitterness.

I can tell this beer has potential, especially a fresh example.

Golden bright orange edges. Two fingers of creamy white head. incredible lacing. Lots of citrus, bit of pine and grass on the nose. Solid malt bill, biscuity. Hops obviously lead the way on flavor. Orange peel, pine, juicy and pithy hops, bitter dry finish. Nice tight carbonation, medium body. Very drinkable. This is a great offering from gigantic, readily available in the NW, look forward to trying more of their beers.

Pours copper. Floral and hoppy. Tastes exactly like it smells. Some caramel sweetness too. Not over the top for a DIPA. Delicious and subtle. Tastes great all the way through. If you get a chance have a pint of this at the brewery in Portland. Great brewery. Great beer.

Wife's Review:"You can tell it is an IPA but it is more drinkable than some."
