I bought a 32-oz growler at the taproom in Astoria on Sunday, June 24th. Tapped it two weeks later. Very tasty and aromatic! Golden orange pour with creamy white head.

Canned on 6/5/18

Pours a deep orange, rusty and with plenty of haze; white head

Smells of fresh orange juice with secondary notes of fresh stone fruits, orange rind, cherry, banana peel, and herbal sweetness.

Plenty of peach and apricot in the taste, as promised; picks up a subtle plethora of sweet notes of herbs and earth through an easy finish that carries just a slight bitterness.

Mouthfeel is soft and juicy, with a near-perfect level of carbonation to give the beer just enough heft without becoming overpowering.

An easy-drinking DIPA that uses subtlety as its strength; soft flavors leave just enough of an impression as to not be basic, and are ultimately enhanced as a while by a stunning mouthfeel and unique bouquet.

Canned on 6-5-18.

A - Pours a hazy to opaque peach color with thick frothy white lacing.

S - Peach, apricot, citrus, and some spicy citrus rind.

T - Apricot, peach, and some citrus. The apricot / peach portion is juicy and dank, even a little vinous. Balanced finish that sits on the sweeter side with some peppery fruit rind adding subtle bitterness.

M - Thick and chewy for a Double IPA.

O - Definitely worth checking out. Singlecut has the IPA thing dialed in.

This is the second time I've had a can from this brewer, and both were definitely overpriced, but very good.

This pours a deep cloudy yellow with great fizz. The aroma is a very skunky hoppy smell. The taste is slightly dry, slightly bitter, and overall very pleasant and balanced, with a mild bitter, yeasty aftertaste.

Recommended, but a poor value. There are beers of this quality for half the price.

Hazy orange, 1 finger white head. Fades quckly to a small film. Strong pungent hops. Heavy yellow grapefruit, bitter orange, under ripened mango. Very little malt.

Mouth gets punched with bitter grapefruit and orange. Is there malt in this? I couldn't detect any. This is unbalanced in a good way. Like eating a plate full of grapefruit and orange rinds. Relentless and unapologetic.

Smooth almost creamy mouthfeel. Drinks easy even with building bitterness.

Well crafted and enjoyable. This one is not for the novice hop head. Buckle up and be prepared for a hop onslaught. Not something I could drink a lot of in one session. 1 can was plenty and very enjoyable.

Pint can "montage!" 2/27/18 opened on 3/24/18
8.0% abv. 120 ibu.

Electric apricot color, yellow gold, white haze and orange hues. Totally opaque. Fat and fluffy all white foam topping, creamy and rocky. Excellent retention. Minimal lacing, good coverage.

A huge, fruity hop nose, densly sweet, with peppery orange, mango, fruity candy, bubble gum, strawberry and cream, slight banana,....thick tropical and melon aromatics from the big hops. Malt seems sweet and creamy scented.

Dang!!! Talk about a deep hop flavor...complexity is deeeep. Peppery wheat and grainy malt tones with some earthy yeast....peppery effects happen first....a bit of boozy heat tingle, with long and lush layers of fruits from the hops. Mango, zesty citrus, dried grasses, more earthy-dry layers on top of that. The hop complexity covers alot of ground, big earthy, bitter and dry tones with multiple layers of dried mango slices, peppery citrus and pine sap bitterness. You can taste and feel every bit of that 120 ibu's. This one is not for the ipa novice. This would literally kill a light beer drinker.

The mouthfeel and texture is medium to almost full bodied, thick, dry, boozy with a bitter-dry finish. The malt seems to be a bit long and chewy, but just about right for a DIPA.

High quality drinking.

Vibrant, cloudy orange with two fingers of foamy, off-white head. Heavy lacing.

Orange creamsicle and mango in the nose, with hint of doughy malt behind. This continues to the taste, coupled with a kiss of earthy bitterness in the aftertaste.

Heavy, creamy feel with a little peppery prickle to it.

Another big, beautiful NEIPA from these guys.

A: The beer is quite hazy pale yellow in color—too hazy to see if there is any visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down a bit but consistently covered the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of dank stone fruits and peaches are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and is rather dank with lots of flavors of stone fruits and some hints of peaches. Little or no bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IIPA is rather dank, but isn't very bitter and does a very good job at hiding its alcohol from the taste. It's rather drinkable considering its strength.
