A: Pours a hazy medium to dark golden honey in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising quickly along the edges of the glass and moderate copper + medium golden yellow + burnt orange colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense sudsy foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a large patch of thin film covering the entire 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 dank resinous, citrus/grapefruit, citrus/grapefruit pith, tropical/mango, and tropical/papaya hops over the top of bready + caramel + biscuit malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel sweetness.

T: Upfront there are slightly stronger than moderate flavors of bready + caramel + biscuit malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of dank resinous, citrus/grapefruit, citrus/grapefruit pith, tropical/mango, and tropical/papaya hops which impart a moderate amount of aggressive bitterness which lingers through the finish.

M: Medium to full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly chewy with a hint of alcohol warming in the finish.

O: This is a big old school DIPA with a moderate amount of sweetness and aggressive bitterness - alcohol is definitely present. Enjoyable but not the easiest drinker, more of sipper.

Canned 2/27/18 and poured into a snifter. A very hazy/somewhat turbid yellow-gold color with a creamy white head. A shot of citrus on the aroma with herbal, resiny notes. Nice dank underpinnings. The taste followed suit - loads of dank resin with citrus popping through. Soft bitterness, especially for the size of the beer. The malt was there but balanced and not too sweet. A bit hot and boozy on the finish but overall excellent.

Very hoppy, fruity taste, not overwhelming. Must be drunk ice cold for best satisfaction. Does not hit you too hard right away, but lingers.

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a tulip glass. Had a bright amber color and a cloudy texture. There was an inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Above average lacing.

S: A very enticing aroma of dank hops, malt, citrus, and some pine as well.

T: Tasted of a hint of sweet malt, a fair shot of pine resin (mostly in the finish), lots of dank hops, an earthy, lots of citrus notes (orange, a little lemon), and tropical fruit (mangoes). This is one of the more focused DIPA flavors I've tasted recently. There's a good balance between the dank, earthy hops and the fruity elements. Quite tasty.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a lively finish. Medium-bodied.

O: An exceedingly well-made DIPA with a lot of character. Definitely worth a look.

Canned 1/20/17 (COME TO DADDY). Enjoyed 2/22/17. Purchased from Pequa Beverage.

Look: Darkest orange i've seen in a while. Almost brown. Not mixed too well, lots of particles that linger. Head does not stick around. (6/10)
Smell: Coffee, Dirt, Orange, Tropical, Hops. (7/10)
Taste: Vaseline, Hops, Coffee, Earth, tastes like a stout. (7/10)
Feel: Vaseline is tough, Resin, oily, Taste lingers, and doesn't go away. (7/10)
Overall: This was a nice change of pace, but definitely nothing like the NE IPA's we like. Very interesting beer, not bad by any means, just different. You should try this. (7/10)

Can poured into a fluted snifter.

Burnt orange with soft haze. Thick foamy head settles fast into floating islands and thick collar.

First thing I get in the aroma is earthy grass and herbal followed by some tropical fruits and hint of residual sweet malts.

Flavor is herbal, full hop onslaught with tropical fruits (e.g. mango) and grassy, resinous flavors. Light alcohol and a hint of caramel sweetness.

Moderate carbonation and a tad higher than medium bodied.

Full flavored but approachable. Nice mix of hoppy flavors that work well in combination.
