22oz bomber poured into a snifter. No bottled on date listed.

A- Pours a cloudy orange with a half finger of white colored head which fades to some froth along the top.

S- Nice citrus and pine aroma with an overall sweetness. The citrus was apparent upon popping the cap.

T- The hops dominate the taste as expected. A caramel malt starts off before the piney resinous notes take over. The alcohol is apparent but not overpowering by any means.

M- Medium bodied, nicely carbonated, hoppy, bitter and refreshing.

A nice easy drinking DIPA from Solemn Oath. I've enjoyed the few beers I've had from them so far and look forward to seeing them grow.

Opaquely hazed dull orange body. Billowing and fluffy white head.

The aroma is grapefruit rind, a light floral lilac, and a strong grainy malt presence.

The hops almost end with the aromatics. It's really grainy and the hop
presence is mildly bitter but the grapefruit and floral notes I picked up in the nose struggled to pop.

Mouthfeel is meditate-light and a pinch slick.

Just ok to me. It started out strong but fell off quickly. I will say it drank much lighter than 8%, that's a plus. I found combat marshmallow, the stout that was bottled about the same time, to be way hoppier.

Appearance is bright and inviting.

Smells of citrus fruits, hops, and bubblegum.

Taste is very citrusy and light for an 8% beer. Hop flavor a bit dull.

Mouthfeel is a mouthful of tropical fruit.

Overall this beer is a very good balance of fruit and hops to make this beer worth purchasing again.
