This drinks so smooth! Lots of dank hops like pine, herb, cannabis, floral and chive but no bitterness or astringency. The mid palate senses a stiff caramel backbone before this finishes with fruity apricot, honey, tangerines, grapefruit, mangoes and tropical fruit punch. Great use and dose of Citra!

What a delicious DIPA. Thanks to hefman for trading one to me all the way from Cali. I think I need a few more to be sure just how amazing they are...

Pours that hazy peach color that tells me its a winner-- (just say no to clear beers)-- smells like the tasting pours at my favorite brewery, HF. Taste is hop deliciousness, piney, very mild citrus, and an interesting finish, ummmm- nutmeg? Yes, there are a lot of maybe better new-comers to the DIPA market, but this is still a fantastic beer!
