4.12/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives with a clear amber color and a decent head that leaves a bit of lace behind

Smell: Pine and pith and balanced out by caramel elements

Taste: The caramel flavors appear first, followed by the piney bitterness that balances out mid-palate; after the swallow, the malty flavors surge forward though there is a lingering hoppy bitterness

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: This beer fits into the balanced DIPA category; while hops abound, there is a lot of malty presence from start to finish

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

notes from phone

A- Hazy golden body with an airy white head

S- Grassy hops, not a whole lot else...

T- Grassy/hay hops up front, some sweet malts in the middle to balance and a faint bitterness finishes

M- Medium-bodied, good level of carbonation, crisp finish

D- Solid beer and a local so I'm sure that tempers me a bit so I will certainly return!

glad i got a chance to try all of these on my florida trip back in april. served into a pint glass.

golden amber in color with a nice head of white that was about two inches at first but then slowly settled down into a rich lacing that coated the sides of the glass. Such a sweet, sharp citrus aroma coming off of this one, simply amazing. Like pineapple and grapefruit juice mixed in a glass and hit with a shot of orange, it was simply amazing. First sip sucked the moisture from my palate. Lip smacking good. Sharp, biting citrus flavor, pineapple and grapefruit rule the day here as the richness and juiceness is simply overwhelming. Each sip seemed to get sharper, crisper then the one before.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Large off-white head, high retention. Soapy lacing, then some clear, oily, slick lacing. Aroma includes lemon, grapefruit and some fresh mowed grass. Taste has a nice malt sweetness in the background but mainly includes citrusy lemon, lemon peel, pine and slight alcohol. Mouthfeel actually is thicker than expected and that I remember in the past, really lingering on and tingling the tongue for a hot minute. Unique and delicious.
