16oz can: this one pours a fairly opaque golden color. There was really no had or lacing to it. The aroma is good. Citrus, orange, resinous and other tropical hops. The taste is good. Similar flavors to the aroma, with some biscuit and sweetness. Nice!

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden with a head of white lace.

Aroma: Tropical hops all over the place. Solid.

Taste: Bitter grapefruit, tropical, orange. There is a lingering bitterness or acidity here that’s a bit off-putting, and a slight warming at the finish. Solid, but not a favorite.

A - Very hazy, dark orange body, full white head and lots of lacing.

S - Pine, mint, a smattering of citrus notes, a touch of zest, and a definite burn from alcohol.

T - Front is the pine and mint, but quickly this is backgrounded, to be replaced with a Creamsicle middle, closing more bitter, with the zest and pith notes trailing out slowly.

F - For as big and burly this is, the feel is clean and light. The alcohol, apparent in the nose, is nowhere to be found when drinking.

O - A very nice DIPA, with lots of fine hop flavors, and strong malt core, and a surprisingly easy feel. Yep, this one is a keeper.

Aroma is muted grapefruit, pine, resin, and biscuity malt. Fairly grassy.

Flavor is very pine dominant, with a grapefruit zest background and a solid, bready malt backbone.
