L: Pours brilliant rich deep amber crowned by a very persistent 3ā€¯slight tan tinted white head and mounds up over the rim of the glass with very fine foam and produces super lace. S: Grain, grass, citrus and resin. T: Intense citrusy, resiny hops cut through a caramelized palate with light alcohol notes. F: Body medium full, creamy soft carbonation, warming on the finish. O: A big assertive, alcoholic IPA that drinks like a pleasant bitter elixir.

Good nose with notes of pine and some underlying citrus. The body and mouthfeel are decent. The taste is ok but as it warms it becomes somewhat medicinal, sort of reminiscent of cough syrup. Definitely worth a shot though!

Tropical and citrusy, but still dank and hoppy. Mango and grapefruit. Awesome stuff.

Smells of floral hops with a hint of banana. Sweet citrus smoothie fades to a punch of hops. Maybe slightly spicy. Slightly sticky but light pretty F'in good DIPA
