On tap. Pours a slightly hazy golden copper with a small white head that has decent retention and leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. The aroma is a lot of piney hops, quite a bit of dankness, a little bit of orange, and some caramel. Initial taste has a light sweetness with lots of dank hops, some pine, and a bit of caramel. Quite dry overall. The finish is quite bitter with some lingering pine. Medium-full body. Medium carbonation. Perhaps a bit too bitter.

Poured from a 16oz can into a snifter

A- pours a deep golden amber, frothy white head that sticks around.... sticky lacing all over the glass

S- smells of tropical fruits, fresh bready malts

T- taste of tropical Easter bready.... sweet, bready, almost can taste the butter on the bread kind of linger

M- buttery slick feel, medium body with a generous amount of hop bite followed by a lingering tropical fruit flavor

O- a pleasing offer from OB, reminds me more of a DIPA more than a IPA... way more malt forward

A - Slightly murky honey orange, off white head that stays for some time. Lots of cling lace.

S - Very hoppy. I get pine and citrus, with a very distinct malt core.

T - I like malty IPAs. I get my wish with this one. Strong malt center, effectively squashed by the hops. I think malt wins by a hair.

M - Medium to fuller body. Good carbonation. Creamy texture. Malty and probably could have used a little more bitter at the end.

D - I could session this one, no problem.

A dark, caramel-y hue, almost reddish. Murky. Definitely can't see through this one. One finger of creamy head, impeccable retention. It just doesn't go away. Good lacing. Has the citrus, grapefruit hoppy smell but not overwhelming. Nice bitter kick in the taste without showing the alcohol, also not too overwhelming, which refreshingly combines with a thicker, grainier maltiness leading to a medium body, not-quite-chewy-level mouthfeel.

Overall, a very solid slightly higher-gravity IPA that I will definitely return to if I have the pennies for it.
