Pouring from a 12 oz. can into a snifter glass, this beer pours out clear and golden. Not perfectly clear but pretty easy to see through to the other side. It formed a dense and tightly packed crown of over a finger. Held up with great retention and left spotty lacing.

The smell brings notes of pine with the most prominence then comes with light fruit, floral and an alcohol sharpness.

The taste has a bread element all the way through to the finish. Some caramel lightly comes through. Crystal malt showing in there. Then comes pine and light fruit like grapefruit, tangerine.

The mouthfeel is juicy but that alcohol does show quite a bit. I feel like even though this is 10%, it could’ve been smoothed out a little instead of being so sharp. Bitter.

Overall, this isn’t bad by any means. I do feel like it would’ve been better at a different time in craft beer though. And I’m an old school ipa fan more than new hazy ipa fan. I love that west coast, huge double feel, I just feel this might be a little too harsh and could’ve been smoothed out.

12oz canned 11/12/18 (38 days ago) poured into a can glass at fridge temp 10% ABV 100 IBU. The beer pours bright orange, golden amber in color with off white head. The head sticks around and leaves some lacing. The aroma is candied grapefruit and evergreen. The taste is semisweet caramel, some grapefruit and pine with a big boozey and highly bitter finish. As advertised. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, adequately carbonated and somewhat dry in the finish. There's a lot of residual sugar and hop shellac in there, but the alcohol and bitterness balance it pretty well. Overall, very good. I'm a sucker for these old school west coast DIPAs.

L: Pours a foggy orange with a decent egg shell colored head, leaving a nice oily film on the glass. Awesome.
S: Pine and tropical fruit.
T: A malty sweetness and hints tropical fruit.
F: Oily and well carbonated.
O: Terrific, but I think I'll take 1ZNuff next time.
