Pours a dense light orange with a swiftly rising, mildly off white head. Looks sticky and it is. It leaves tons of lace on the glass and has nice legs too.
Smells like rich caramel with nice hints of citrus. This is hop dominant but the malts really balance it out well. It's dense on the tongue and the hops present well at first, then the malt sweetness finishes it off. The rich creaminess allows it to linger and it has a very nice carbonation level.
I really hope this is a year round brew as I could see this as a go to beer.

Pours from the can a dark copper with a slight haze. Forms a finger high soapy white head that has below average retention. Layered lacing is left on the glass.

Resinous pine is first on the nose with a backing of grapefruit pith. Underpowered aroma overall. Malt is caramel sweetness with some nutty subtleties. Alcohol comes piercing through with a bit of red fruit and more dank resin.

Caramel and biscuit-like malt carry a huge burden to manage the resinous hops, orange citrus second with a wave of alcohol on its heels. Very green and dank flavor accompanies the heavy load of bitterness in the wake of the alcohol.

Medium body and carbonation. The alcohol and bitterness gradually lift from the palate leaving a drying sensation.

Resinous to be sure but there is alot of mild citrus and earthy flavors from the hops as well. You feel all the 100+ IBUS as well as the alcohol. Good DIPA, could be cleaned up a bit and the hops more centralized to the big pine and dank resin that the name promises.
