Bottle shared by Steve, 22oz into a snifter.

Poured a clear orange, with a transient white head. A light film and a tight collar retain atop this. Bright hops and citrus notes in the nose, floral with even a bit of tropical fruit suggestions. Lots of orange and tangerine really. Good malt character, I got a lot of caramel and toffee like sweetness. Taste is similar, chewy orange and tangerine notes with again, some tropical fruit leanings. Lots of malt in a sticky and sweet fashion, sets a good base for this beer. Profile isn't incredibly complex, but it's quite effective. Heavy medium mouthfeel, good chewiness and a moderate bitterness. Not the best freshness on this bottle I'd gather, bit the taste is well retained. I've love to revisit this fresher.

22oz bottle into a goblet glass at fridge temp.

Most recent release so pretty fresh

A- Pours a nice golden yellowish orange with a nice 1 finger white head and tons of carbonation bubbles streaming up from the bottom of the glass. Not much lacing other than a couple splotches but leaves some really nice alcohol feet on the side of the glass.

S- Really strong pine and grassy notes from the hops with some sweet citrus in there for sure. Definitely a slight alcohol presence as well. Smells really refreshing.

T- Strong pine and earthy hops battle it out with a more lemon grapefruit and tropical fruit flavor that is almost a little bit to much for me but gets better as it warms.

M- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a nice strong bitter and dry finish that a DIPA should have.

Overall being a huge IPA fan this is a great find but nothing over the top or amazing. Great summer beer to chill out with and enjoy on a hot day. Could use more hops and less fruitiness for me though.

SkÅL!
