Very sweet and hoppy smell. Unfiltered look. Really hoppy taste with alittle malty finish. There is s hint of citrus. This is kind of like dirtwolf and 90 minute ipa mixed together. This taste stronger boozier than a standard ipa. But the abv is only 6.8% but there is all this flavor, that's just outstanding.

Pours a slightly hazy orange with a white head. Smell is very citrusy with some biscuity malt. Taste is huge citrus with slight floral and pine. Bisuity and toasty malts. Pretty bitter as well. Mouthfeel is just right for this style. Maybe a bit thick. Good carbonation. Overall, a pretty good IPA but nothing special. This is on the level as Torpedo for me. For a beer that advertises Simcoe and Amarillo, I really can't taste the Amarillo. A much better beer that pairs the two is Alpine Duet.

I don't know how the bros say this is only an 83. This damn good, refreshing, highly drinkable. Just an outstanding WCIPA. Great hop notes, citrus, mango, peach, apricot, etc. Nice balanced backbone. Cristp and clean. Sticky and danky. I can't say another good things.
