Pours a mildly hazy gold with an orange tint, light head and lacing. Dank crisp mildly fruity almost metallic scent. Slightly bitter with a mild citrusy taste. Gentle, mouth filling feel, higher abv is disguised well. Good, not great, but worth trying.

Poured a slightly hazy orange color with golden highlights and large head of foam. It smelled of pine, grapefruit and other citrus fruits. Bold bitter hoppiness up front, toasted caramel and grapefruit sweetness.

i have really liked this series, and always look forward to the beers coming around each year. this is an exceptional big ipa, spiked with candy sugar instead of malt to boost the alcohol, and while sometimes im not a huge fan of that, i think its an essential aspect of this. by keeping the maltiness very low in sweetness and body and flavor, we can appreciate a pretty unique hop build in its full intended glory, and thats a great recipe decision. the hops in this hazy pale beer are quite unique, soft clean citrus, mandarin particularly, elderflower and rose, and if i close my eyes, i get blueberry and white grape fruitiness too, not quite tropical, but pungent and interesting, unlike others, the combination is excellent and the schedule is dialed. bitterness is high, but it ramps up slowly, it doesnt accost me all at once, and it doesnt linger too long. this is an expression of freshness too, these hops are at their peak, juicy and vibrant and what others should aspire to. the beer has an almost creamy feel with the haze and the hop oils swirling about, its going down way too easy for its strength, but i feel it intoxicating me almost instantly. i think avery ipa, the basic one, is crap. it bothers me to see it around so much, its really lackluster, and these guys are capable of such great hoppy beers, i cant believe the havent reworked that one yet. this is a great testament to that, one of my favorite hoppy beers of the year so far. super unique hop complexion and perfectly fresh!

This beer pours a slightly hazy pale gold with an average head. The aroma features strong pine and caramel tones, with orange, mango, honey, floral qualities, and grapefruit. The flavor starts rather sweet, with caramel, mango, honey, and sweet orange mingling together, this is followed by a bitter, piney, and resinous quality, an then a finish that is soft and floral with only a little lingering bitterness. The mouthfeel is full bodied and foamy. Overall this is a nice and styling DIPA, with a deft sense of balance, and great restraint. Nothing sticks out as dominant here, rather it is quite harmonious and settled.

L: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a golden yellow / amber color and a hazy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A nice aroma of hops, pine, malt, and citrus as well.

T: Tasted of a moderate amount of pine, a good shot of hops (not as much as in other DIPAs), a bit of malt, citrus (orange, a little lemon), and some tropical fruit (mango). A very solid flavor that's not quite as aggressive as other beers of the style. Still, it's well-balanced and tasty.

F: An above average amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: In general this is a well done beer. It has its flaws, but is still quite drinkable.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a lightly hazy, medium golden amber with a nice two finger white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of pale and lightly biscuit malt, citrus and piney hops with some dankness, green onion, orange citrus. Flavor is citrus and piney hop forward, supported by pale malt, with resinous, but somewhat astringent alpha hops developing with citrus rind and light green onion. Finishes with lemon rind hops. Medium bodied with nice light creaminess. I can taste the Simcoe in there, but with more deeply bitter citrus hops in the mix. The hops lean towards bittering with understated herbal flavors. There is a slight burst of mild caramel in the finish that redeems the light malt that just supports the hops. Interesting and compelling hop flavors, but could use a little more malt and hop herbal flavor to support the big ABV. This grew on me as I drank it, and its bigness brought out more flavor as time went on, but still a little unbalanced for its size. It does live up to the giant hop bud on the label, however. I liked this overall, but not sure I'd get it again.
