Hazy amber
Very syrupy citrus smell: apricot, strawberry, almost a cherry (artificial, like a cough drop flavor), pine
Tastes of cherry, hay, caramel, grassy malt. Bitter
Hard to gauge mouthfeel because my girlfriend shook it like a polaroid picture before opening the bomber and we lost like 25% of the bottle to foam so its kinda flat. Creamy/syrupy
I really wanted this to be better than it was

Hazy orange color with an off white head.

Smells like a fruity hop bomb.
If this tastes half as good as it smells, i will be very happy.

Slight bitterness up front, a bit of malt, citrus, fruit and maybe some pine in the taste.

This stuff is great, a bit surprised by the "very good" rating. Ive had lesser beers with higher ratings. I think once more people try this it will raise.

A nice looking beer with nice aromas. Good solid dipa I wouldn't turn down if offered. Deep ruby in color with good lacing throughout. Flavors of grapefruit and pineapple. Feel is decent but finishes just a tad harsh. Overall a good beer.
