4.36/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Mango colour with a generous two inch head. Substantial lacing that makes me wipe my finger in the glass to peel out every last crust of sea foam.

Aroma is bigger malt on the front with a mellifluous tropical floral arrangement. Of course we can't forget Mr. Pine. Caramel wafting among biscuity components.

Hopped up bitterness blended well with the denser tropical fruits creating a desired dankness. The malt sweetness quickly balances the entire taste experience.

Full bodied like the Sabrina sultress laying the debut on the label. Oily hop resin with floral hop in the nose. Layered almost impeccably. Long dry hop finish. A nice sticky dryness. I love the fact that this is not toot sweet yet sticky enough in other words not a palate wrecker.

Fantastic double IPA with a comforting unobtrusive ABV. Great balance, a quality craft and great marketing label. Stands with the best of them. Well done craft at 95 IBU. I will buy again.

Starts with big graham cracker aromas seasoned with resin, a hint of mint, and slight grass aromas with a suggestion of fruit. It pours brilliant amber under a slightly off-white 1” slowly receding foam cap. The palate is melon with tropical fruit over graham cracker, seasoned with fruity hop bitterness throughout and concluding with a hop drying finish. It drinks very creamy and smooth with medium body and carbonation.
