Burnt orange, creamy clumpy head that lays down sheets of sticky lace. Malt and alcohol lead the way - bready toasted malt with a slather of caramel. Hops fit the dank descriptor that gets thrown around a lot - a wallop of grassy herbal bitterness. More alcohol lingers on the finish. Finer notes of pine and lime creep out as it warms. A bit too much alcohol for my preference in DIPAs. Still a solid beer and worth a try. $4 and change for a big, well-made beer is a bargain these days.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

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.
