The beer comes in a hazy golden yellow color.

The aroma offers big tangerine, passionfruit, ripe apricot, peaches. A bright Citra aroma with no malt to speak of.

The flavor follows tasting of pure grapefruit zest. A smack of spicy floral of lavender and hints of eucalyptus and grass hit on the middle as the beer dries out towards a slight herbacious note.

A hugely floral DIPA that could be mistaken for a treat from Shaun Hill of Hill Farmstead. A large hop presence that sticks to the teeth, leaving hop residue and flavors lingering.

Poured from a six-ish day old growler.

Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits jump out of the glass.

Taste is similar to the nose, citrus and tropical fruits, good malt balance, minimal bitterness. Not sure if this would be even fruitier if really fresh, but if so that would be pretty damn amazing.

Overall, a great beer. Very smooth and dangerously drinkable. Easily crushed three 12oz pours in a very short time period. Heady and Pliny have nothing on this.

Courtesy of SomethingClever thank you for your earnest effort for me to receive this beer! From notes..yeah I take those.
Appearance: Brilliant shade of Sunshine! Cloudy and mischievous, with a nice crown of frothy white head. The aroma is just straight Dank hops! Look, I hate to use the word Dank, but yeah, this brew is Dank and pleasant! Underlaying of citric, earthy hops with almost an herbal onion quality! The taste is just as banging! Citric, earthy and herbal. All hops with some subtle malts and alcohol on the back part of the tongue. The beer finishes as any DIPA should, dry, bitter and smooth! The mouthfeel is Medium-light and light carb.

Overall: This beer is up there with Gandhi Bot. This brew is now one of my favorite DIPAs. It isn't lacking anything when it comes to DIPAs. It's incredibly drinkable, hoppy and nice balance on the malts yet Raw! This brew is recommended!

This beer is simply fantastic. Beautiful color and excellent smell. The hops explode on the tongue and there is little alcohol aftertaste that many DIPS's seem to have.

I am moving this into my upper tier of Brews with no reservation. Best beer brewed in Ohio in my opinion.
