4.1/5 rDev +6.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Just showed up in Wisconsin so I thought I would give it a shot and buy a 6, looks like it was bottled in late January.
Pours a clear copper, I assume this is filtered based on how crazy clear it is, half finger of white head, leaving spotty lacing.
Smell is pine, bready and biscuit malt, caramel, herbal hop, some grapefruit comes through
Taste is heavy pine, nice bready and bicuity malt, caramel and toffee, grapefruit bitterness, a few other citrus notes come through mainly lemon and orange, finishes off with piney bitterness and a doughy malt.
Mouthfeel is medium, heavy carbonation, pretty dry.
Really well crafted beer here, it reminds me of DFH 90 min just a smaller version of that (never had 60min so cant compare to that)
A lot heavier on the pine then the citrus and tropical hops. It is extremely well put together, and well I can pretty much assure you that you have tasted this one before regardless of you have had it or not. But never the less a decent beer that I will enjoy from time to time! Hope the cans hit this area, I could see my self picking this up more in cans for the beach or something.

4.36/5 rDev +13%

Poured from a 12oz. can into a Sam Adams pint glass
Flows into the glass a beautiful crystal-clear gold with lots of carbonation. A stiff pour yields a massive head, very foamy with big bubbles. It condenses fairly fast and leaves a a lot of lacing.
The aroma is quite nice. I get citrus, pine, a bit of rising bread, orange peel, grass and a hint of onion.
This beer tastes great. Layers of hop flavors. Juicy citrus up front, some pine and a nice lingering and spicy bitterness. As it warms, a little bit of grassiness and even a hint of onion. There's also some malty sweetness hiding in the background.
The mouthfeel is light to medium with a bit of stickiness.
overall, a really good IPA that I wish I could obtain on a regular basis.
