Piney dank hops, extremely drinkable. A must try fresh!

Hoppy, Citrus, Pine, Cloudy, Dry, Bright. If you are looking for a strong IPA then you should give this a try. I wish it had more nose but the taste makes up for it. It has a light and small white head that doesn't last for long. The first thing you get is the pine, almost a sap flavor which transfers to a bitter citrus taste My burbs kind of taste fruity, like plum or peach which is nice.

Yummy!

I'm always trying new brews. It seems like every brewer makes an IPA (or DIPA or IPA3 or some other hoppy thing) these days and I've had a lot of "good" ones.
This one is a standout, one of the best DIPAs I've had in a while. Hoppy, dank & heady.

Pours out as a cloudy amber orange. Has nice upfront fruity/earthy-dank aromas with a hint of the malts.
The massive hop additions are noticeable in the density of the mouthfeel. Smooth, and almost creamy.

Intense hop forward flavor. Resinous pine, with a bit of fruit . The alcohol is not evident.

A bit too easy drinking for its abv... best not to have too many on hand....
