A - Pours this deep, hazy gold with a nice 2 finger width white head and little carbonation bubbles. The head will disappear very quickly to a little lacing.

S - Very subtle on the nose, everything is greatly balanced with this brew. Little bits of hops, citrus, malts, again, I'm going to say this, citrus. Grapefruit, lemons, oranges, this is what comes to mind in the hops.

T - A splash of flavors at first, everything hits at once. Hops and their characteristics of citrus undertones, the content is very noticeable, it does taste like alcohol if you concentrate, but the wonderful hops cover it up fast.

M - A tad spicy, carbonation is very light, and not thick at all. This can definitely be a session beer if sold in a larger amount.

O - I will definitely be enjoying this again on a weekend night. Very good and a nice brew, the only reason I am docking it this much points is due to the head disappearing so fast. Other than that, this is a great brew and should be tried!

Pours hazy amber with a large head.
Malty aroma, quite sweet-smelling. Also piny and resinous hops alongside marmalade notes.
Very aggressive flavours, big piny and resinous notes throughout. Also a fair bit of booze and a load of malt. The bitterness definitely wins out though.
Nice syrupy body.

A: Poured out a hazy amber color with two fingers of frothy pale orange head. Good retention and rings of lacing.

S: Big, sweet orange smell with a fair amount of pineapple. Slightly tart lemon creeps up in the background.

T: Similar to the smell. A little bit on the maltier side, but still has a good bitter hop presence. An earthy hop finish. A good amount of booziness.

M: Medium, sticky body that is also a bit creamy. Medium-light carbonation. Definitely getting a boozy burning feeling from the 12% ABV.

O: Enjoyable, but a little bit boring. It tastes a lot like some of the other DIPAs I've had. What I like about this one is that it is 12% where a lot of DIPAs shy away from that range. A nice experiment would be to cellar this one and I'm sure it would really smooth out.
