Pours a slightly coppery orange. Big bubbles create a one third inch of off-white foam.

Dank grapefruit, surprisingly malty aroma. Lots of pine resin to the nose.

Tastes is surprisingly sweet. Lots of caramel, malt is very forward. Some mandarin orange slices mix their way in. Some bready, slightly unpleasant acrid soap aftertaste. Only real downside to an otherwise very pleasant flavor. Minor burnt pine can be detected.

Needs more carbonation.

3.81/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance is a clear and striking copper with a finger of head that dissipated rather quickly but left some intricate lace on the glass. The nose is piney and hoppy. The malt and hop flavors are present in a balanced combination but there is just nothing extraordinary about this offering. There is also a semi-sour bite from the alcohol that is slightly unpleasant.

This is a fine and perhaps even above average DIPA. However, it pales in comparison to Racer X or even Apex.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Good head for a bar pour. Sticks around throughout the tasting. It also leaves a blanket of lace. Dark gold and nearly clear.

Mild, but appealing fresh, floral hop aroma. A bit caramel (crystal) malt as the secondary nose. Pleasant blend.

The malt comes out more strongly in the taste. There's a bit of sweetness with an I fermented malt touch. Comes across like an amber with a solid bitter hop kick in the swallow. Full bodied with an average carbonation level. The aftertaste is bittersweet but more bitter than sweet.

Serving type: on-tap
