64 oz growler filled at Food Cellar & Co. in Long Island City, NY.

Gold to amber in color and clear with a moderate white head that leaves a ring clinging to the edges of the glass and a thin film on the surface. Sparse lacing on the glass. Soft carbonation but the head is easily revitalized with a few swirls of the glass.

Tons of pine in the aroma with some alcohol present. Biscuit and hay from the malt. Citrus comes through in the flavor but the alcohol is still noticeable and make it a bit "hot" on the tongue. Medium bodied and surprisingly drinkable given its ABV.

Great nose on this beer and it is a little over 2 months old, so it has held up well. Body is deep golden in color with a clean white head. The nose gives some tropical fruit notes like guava and passion fruit. This is a well rounded DIPA with just enough sweetness to make it completely crushable. I detect none of the high ABV. Really fruity and juicy. Seems like Amarillo hops maybe. No harsh bitterness or piney notes.

First had: on tap at TJ's, Paoli, PA

Hey there, Brooklyn. Upping your game, it seems. Nice happy hour treat here. Hazy, golden-amber pour into a snifter, topped with a solid white head; nice retention and lacing. Nice aroma of citrus hops and tropical fruits, sweet malt base in the background. Similar taste, lots of good hops, citrus zest, tropical fruit, pine needles, bready malt background noise. Not the freshest IPA in the world, but still crisp and tasty; good work for this brewery. Medium body, easily drinkable for the style, higher alcohol well-hidden. No problem ordering more than one of these.
