Big thanks to abbddull for this growler. Poured into a tulip.

The beer pours a nice amber/orange that lets a good amount of light through. It has a small white head with a good amount of the traditional oily DIPA lacing.

The smell is very interesting. The first smell is pine, but it's not the strongest smell, just a faint pine that introduces the beer. The dominant smells are citrus hops and a little sweetness, like a pineapple perhaps. Not much booze in the smell, which is unexpected.

The taste is bitter, bitter pine and citrus, just an awesome example of the style. The hops are there at the start, middle and finish of the taste and it leaves you with a nice dry finish.

The beer was surprisingly well carbonated (this was my first growler trade, didn't know what to expect). The bitterness was spot on for the style and I really like a double IPA with a dry finish. The high abv is well hidden and the beer is delicious, something I am definitely going to revisit in the future.

A-pours an orange straw color with a foamy white head with nice retention
S-grassy pine aroma with bright lemon citrus
T-Very hop forward with more pine and lemon and finishes with some malt sweetness, lingering pine and resin bitterness
M-medium bodied, hides abv quite well
O-Pretty solid DIPA that really nails the american style. Bitterness definitely lingers but I would probably still drink it again
