On tap at America on Tap.
Deep golden color, big rich caramel maltiness with some earthy pine and resin to counter. Not a bad beer, but a bit sweeter than I prefer in a DIPA.

Pours a light amber/orange color with a decent sized head, majority of it fades quickly but there is a lasting thin cap, plenty of sticky lacing on the glass.

Smell has a strong caramel malt backing, mild piney hop presence shoved behind the sweetness.

Taste starts out with an earthy piney bitterness, caramel malt balances things out quickly, very rough around the edges, alcoholic strength mostly well hidden, medium-low carbonation with a decent creamy softness to it.

Malty side-tongue lingering. Unfiltered. Looks like a gross brownish red filthpit. Good strong double IPA hop scent.
