look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

This beer is the jam- bitter like a mofo and piney as a forest. This is one of my all time favorite IPAs. Clear and two finger head with a vigorous pour (pour vigorously).

Smell is super piney. Not much to say except an exceptional pine resin smell.

Tastes awesome- pine resin aroma and bitterness balanced with a slight biscuity malt profile.

Medium light bodied with moderate carbonation. If you love your ipas aggressive bitter and uncivilized, this is the beer for you. Seek it out. Now.

Super excited to try this one! Another find at Palm Beach TW.
A - 4.25 - Nice super clear amber-gold color with a white film of bubbles on top that leave nice lacing.
S - 4.75 - BOOM! Grapefruit, pineapple, pine, resin, ganja, absolutely no malt to speak of (and there shouldn't be!) It smells amazing.
T - 4.75 - Grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, lemon/lime, pine, resin, ganja. Just an explosion of hops.
M - 4.75 - Light/medium, so bitter. Alc completely covered. Aftertaste is grapefruit, orange zest, pine...
O - 4.75 - This is an amazing beer. Most similar to La Cumbre Elevated or Ballast Point Sculpin. Just another example of why the overhyped IPAs aren't really as good as people say they are.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter.. acquired as an extra in a trade.

A- Pours a hazy bright orange body with a 2 finger white head that reduces fairly quickly but leaves excellent lacing.

S- Floral and citrusy.. not overly potent but definitely invites a sip, what's there is nice. Subtle pine and resin too in the background.

T- Yummy yums. Upfront is a blast of tropical and citrus fruits, balanced with a lightly sweet malty backbone that gives way to a resinous bitterness that lingers for a bit.

M- Medium-low carbonation, medium-light body, pretty drinkable.

Overall a well done DIPA. The balance here is excellent and the hop profile is quite tasty.
