Slight malt with a good bitter front end. Great Hoppy flavor on the back end. Very enjoyable. Packs a punch every sip

Appearance – A classic DIPA with a cloudy but intense orange body and an easy off-white head.

Smell – This was a complete fail for the brewers in an otherwise excellent offering. I could not find any aromatic hops and the malts were absent.

Taste – The ale redeemed itself here. The risky inclusion of Maris Otters paid off here as the balance was impeccable even amongst the roar of Triple Cs. Nailed it.

Mouthfeel – The bitterness will be too much for most and this beer is huge, nearly full-bodied.

Drinkability – The strong bitterness made this one a bit clumsy but otherwise a good effort.

A: Pours a relatively clear deep golden honey to copper in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate notes of orange + peach highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy sudsy light beige head that reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of citrus/grapefruit pith and piney hops over the top of moderate aromas of caramel + grainy sweet malts.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of moderately sweet caramel + grainy malts. That is followed by moderate to strong flavor of citrus/grapefruit pith and piney hops which impart a light to moderate amount of bitterness which does not linger for too long. Light hints of alcohol in the finish but not too sharp a flavor.

M: Slightly fuller than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slight amounts of alcohol warming in the finish.

O: A very well balanced DIPA - both malty sweet and hoppy bitterness but neither outshine the other. Easy to drink for the strength and enjoyable.
