Pours a two finger yellow-tan head over a brilliant copper liquid. Smells lemony, grapefruit, pith, orange zest, clean alcohol, resiny, and pine. Tastes clean pithy, lemon, grapefruit, and clean alcohol sting is strong. Tropical esters, lightly of pear syrup, apricot, and light-colored caramel. Creamy dextrinous in the mouth, medium thick, but comes across lighter due to cleansing alcohol. Modest carbonation. Nice beer on a style I'm not particularly fond of.

Bottle purchased from Bring on the Beer.
I didn't hear a hiss when I popped the cap but with the pour, a deep gold with a 1 finger head of foam, my worries got the hell out of Dodge. Another brew here with fine lacing. It looks great.
Bready malt, caramel malt, dominate the nose. Oh shoot, this bottle has already been aged for me. Bottled on May 10th. I guess that explains the lack of any hoppy aromas.
At this stage, it is more of an all malt DIPA and it tastes great! Lots of freshly baked bread like flavour, some caramel sweetness, no hint...zero bitterness and quite the hunk of alcohol heat. It makes me curious as to what a bit of hop bitterness would have been like in a fresh bottle but being only 4 months old, I'd reckon it couldn't have been too big and bold. The flavours are now starting to wear on me. Great, sadly, has become okay.
Great mouthfeel and there's now some sort of bitterness going on, I'd say a bit of roughish pine. I've had a few Drake beers and this is most likely my least favourite. Yes, it is. Oh well, the others I've had were top notch.
