I tried a can of this at Pinstripes in Lombard, IL. It poured a clear copper with white head that is leaving a some lace. The scent had citrus peel notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with citrus peel presence. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer.

Canned on 11/27/18. 16oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a burnt golden with nice clarity and transparency with bubbles racing upwards; fluffy off-white head that fades leaving nice retention and lacing. The aromas have some tropical fruits along with some caramel. The flavors follow the nose. Some peach, mango and pineapple leading the way. Some caramel. Solid hop flavors. Some pine in the mix. It's sticky and bittersweet. Solid malt backbone. Some alcohol flavors in the finish, but it's not hot or boozy at all. Finishes juicy. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's very fluffy, slick and smooth.

This is a solid DIPA. Solid hop aromas and flavors. It's a big beer that drinks big. It's definitely malt forward, but the malts don't diminish the hops. It's enjoyable and fun to drink. I like it.

A - Deep copper color, creamy thick lacing ring and light carbonation.

S - Caramel and citrus aroma, sticky resin on the nose.

T - Citrus and resiny pine from start to finish, ends with a lingering piney bitterness. Some alcohol warming on the way down with a touch of boozy effervescence.

M - Medium body with some prickly carbonation.

O - Rock solid D-IPA and nice to have something that isn't opaque and sweet. Worth a try!

Nice clean amber with an off-white head that sticks around. Resiny, tropical fruit on the nose. Gives a blast of bitter, fruity hops that last all the way through. Definitely earns the imperial mark. Not quite balanced enough for my taste, but still very good.

Half Acre crushed this. Awesome DIPA with great citrus aroma and wonderful dank malty bitter taste. I thought this was prettty easy to drink but if definitely kicks your ass with the alcohol at 10%. I drank this out of a 16 oz can and was definitely feeling it by the end. But....I loved every sip. Great for a rainy fall day and I can’t wait to enjoy the three other cans. Good value as compared to many other comparable beers. 4 pack of cans in Wegmans in Pennsylvania near Wilmington Delaware.

Very traditional but very good double IPA - grapefruit rind, citrus (tangerine / nectarine / etc) elements, piney bitter finish...might seem run of the mill but quietly very good
