Hazy on the pour... to be expected with the style. Absolutely beautiful in the sunlight.

Smells extremely hoppy and fruity with a bit of malt

Taste is very hip forward with the Citra bomb and a great malt backbone. Not a huge malt fan but this beer does a great job of not overdoing the malt.

Very smooth carbonation on the mouth feel and leaves a great strong Citra after taste

One of the best DIPAs and beers I have ever tasted. Buy it at any cost if you have the chance

Terrific beer... terrific...

This isn't a super hazy NE IPA that is all the rage right now... it's a throwback to an old school bitter kick ass DIPA... had a few pours at the Great Taste and this beer stood out to me for sure amongst all of the others... it wasn't the best beer I had at the fest but it was a damn tasty one and I would not hesitate to pull the trigger on this anytime I saw it.

This hits all of the marks for a classic throwback DIPA.

Nice work from TG on this...
