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

Appearance: It has a nice deep hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of pungent tropical hops (loads of citrus, grapefruit, pineapples, peaches), light pine resins and sweet caramelly malts in the back.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a loads of tropical notes (citrus, grapefruit, pineapple), a piney/grassy bitterness and some sweet caramelly malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a med/high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas.

Thanks to papat444 for the trade

A: Poured thick and foamy with 2 fingers of bone white head over a baltic amber clear brew.
S: Caramelized orange and sweet scent of marmalade followed with fresh cut pine tree, like pine sawdust and fresh sap and finishes clean on the end.
T: Big burst of hoppy bitter orange and grapefruit rind with notes of pine sap - while still smooth and malty. Finish is mild on the hops with smooth malts that hang thick on the tongue.
M: Thick and smooth with a syrup coating and some snappy carbonation on the front.
O: A solid offering for a double IPA that doesn't attempt to reach too far to be overly complex. But rather does a very solid offering of hops with bold malts, a clean and uncomplicated brew.
