This pours a golden tan in color. There’s an amazing aroma that’s fresh and vibrant, with a great piney citrus peel combination.

Tastes piney, chewy, resiny, with that wonderful citrus profile. There’s a pleasing bitterness that opens up into a long delicious finish. This was fantastic.

Clear pale gold body topped by a finger of foam. Nose is a mix of bright pineapple and stone fruit with a touch of resinous pine beneath. There's a bit of sweetness, but not much actual malt or grain presence. Good clean fermentation. Nicely balanced on the palate, big juicy pineapple and peach, a little sweetness, and a bit of piney old-school C-hop roughness. Medium-light body with moderate bitterness that's clean and doesn't linger. This is very good - not as malty and sweet as Faction's other IPAs have been. Dialed in and delicious.

A:golden, honey - orange. Very clear.

S:honey, some citrus and a sweet make aroma.

T:big honey, sweet malt, medium to high bitterness with hop flavors integrated well throughout. Could be an old keg but still tasty.

Mf:medium to sticky/heavy body. Good carbonation.

Overall a tasty double that I would not pass up.
