Huge thanks to Tony for this growler, fresh from the source.

Lacking proper glassware, I poured this into a Night Shift feku. Very attractive beer, golden color, good clarity overall with a slight haze, topped with a beautiful cap of white foamy head; excellent retention, and nice pillowy lacing. The aroma was dank and earthy, notes of body odor and marijuana, pine resin. It seems like a lot of people pick up citrus notes in this beer, but I really got nothing citrusy whatsoever, and it was certainly lacking in crispiness. The taste largely reflected the nose, very dank, wet, flavors of pine needles, pot, a little oniony, with a good dose of bready malts that I'd expect from an average DIPA. Body was about medium, clean mouthfeel, but again, not really crisp or fresh/zesty. Definitely a nice beer, and easily drinkable, but really nothing tremendous.

Thanks to Justin for sharing this one.

The beer pours a nice hazy orange color with a nice creamy white head.

The smell and taste are good, but a little one dimensional to me. When I taste it I can only think it tastes like an orange cream sickle. It has a nice orange hop presence with the lactose like sweet malts, but really not much bitterness or hop bite at all. A nice feat, but really not too interesting after a while, a nice creamy feel though.

Not bad but overrated in my opinion. I agree with my friend starrdogg that it is too simple to be in the top 100.

Growler received in trade from Bencooper27, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a cloudy light golden color with a decent head and lice retention and lace. Aromas of citrus, pine, resin, garlic and a heavy dose of caramel and bready sweetness. The flavor follows the aroma but ends up a bit too much on the sweet malty side for my liking. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet resiny mouthfeel. Nice enough IPA but seemed a bit sweet for a dipa imho.
