4.18/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25

From a 12 oz bottle into a tulip.

A: Dark copper with some golden orange, minimal head that fades quickly. Leaves a very sticky lacing.

S: A herbal hop symphony, reminds me of spring salad mix - Amaranth and Mizuna (California Peppergrass). The hop profile is very spicy with a moderate amount of grapefruit, I personally get minimal pine on the nose. Faint notes of a boring malt backbone.

T: Bitter and biting. All the way through. Its a double IPA - it does it well but is slightly exaggerated. There is a very early caramel malt sweetness that is quickly and entirely enveloped by the hops. The grapefruit is much more pronounced on the tongue. That bitterness lasts well through the late palate and just wont die in the aftertaste.

M: Perfect. Full mouth coating and "resinous" as described by the brewer. The malt balance and viscosity is absolutely perfect for the style.

O: An excellent / very good example of the style. +1 for grapefruit. Not the absolute best I have ever had, but at the price point the best you can probably get for your dollar.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a clear golden yellow with good clarity. Some wispy lace, but zero head retention. Smells amazing - huge bouquet of flowers, fruity, resinous, malty. Taste follows - big bitter hop forward bruising the palate. Balanced with some malts, but the astringent drying mouth feel takes over. Overall, this is a solid DIPA from Shorts.

3.95/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - pours a golden orange glowing hazed color with a nice finger of white head with steady yet thin lacing.

S - Delicious citrus mix with sweet malty caramel. Definitely some resinous orange and lemon rinds.

T - Wow. Big resinous and mango flavor. Lots of sweet alcohol astringency. Odd sweetness that I presume to be a combination of the alcohol and the malt sweetness (honey like). Overall quite good but the alcoho/honey sweetness at the finish is a bit offputting.

M - mediumish bodied with fairly song carbonation. Overall quite drinkable (aside from that alcohol)

3.33/5  rDev -19.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: a deep but dull golden orange. completely hazy and opaque. a small white head that fades quickly and leaves nothing behind

Smell: mango, papaya, and other juicy tropical fruits. pine and resiny hops. a fair amount of sweetness but not much too it.

Taste: opens with papaya quickly cut by hop resin. lots of tropical fruits including mango, and pine. backend has some sweetness, maybe some honey. super resiny hops. some alcohol.

Mouthfeel: medium body, lots of lingering resiny bitterness. and a fairly bit of warmth

Overall: lots of great tropical fruits but a bit too much of an intense hop resin for me. also the alcohol and associated heat for me in the style
