Can from Wegmans. Medium amber with creamy head, rings of lacing. Aroma is astringent, medicinal, juniper. Taste adds some caramel and toffee to this mix., sweet and stinging at the finish. Nice textures and weight. Flows nicely over the tongue.

Can to Snifter.

LOOK: clear yellow-orange. Small off white head, fades ; medium retention.
AROMA: some woody/sappy hops as the name suggest, but not a ton.
TASTE: pine laced with brown sugar. grass. There is a sweetness up front that morphs to bitterness in the finish. A touch more pine/sap/resin than I am comfortable with but not unpleasant.
FEEL: light to medium body; a touch sticky. medium carbonation.

Tasty enough. This reminds of an old ESB style.

Love the dankness and honesty of this serious Hop expression- From the first sip, the intoxicating aroma and IBU slaps you upside da face as the warm high alcohol buzz washes over you. Loved it.

What an intense balance, a progressive intensity of hippy heaven with a desirable lasting finish.

Description: Golden, hazy appearance with a thick, foamy white head (1 - 1.5 fingers worth) and good head retention/lacing. Smell is dank and tropical with mango, peach, pineapple and just a hint of pine. The taste is similarly dank but not as much as I would like. The finish is only slightly bitter but there are plenty of hops to be had. The alcohol is not overwhelming but is noticeable. Feel is thick and fluffy with low to medium carbonation.

Overall: 4.25 (This beer is good and I would likely drink it again) This is a solid all around DIPA. I would have appreciated more dankness and the alcohol to be hidden a bit more, but those are minor points and didn't detract much from the overall beer.

9% ABV makes this a strong one. Nice heavy punch too with lots of deep flavor without the fruityness of some double IPA's. Thumbs up.
