Pours a slightly cloudy, orange/honey hue. Some sticky lace left behind by the near two-finger width, fluffy off-white head that holds retention well. Pretty tropical fruit and hop forward up front on smell: grapefruit, guava, pineapple, along with pine and caramel from the malt.

I actually pick up the Nelson hops pretty heavy in this one, with a clovy, tobacco chewiness and strong pine resin presence. Overripe grapefruit, orange peel, guava as well. A slight earthiness followed by a wave of heavy malt backbone. Slightly creamy with a lingering bitterness on the tongue. Alcohol covered well.

Overall this was a decent DIPA. A little one-note but this was more hop-forward than malt-forward in my eyes despite prior reviews. Maybe I was just graced with a good batch? Who knows. But I feel this is deserving of a better rating.

Solid double IPA, very flavorful and refreshing. Not too overpowering.

Not really sure this is an ipa lol it taste kind of like a slightly hoppy doppelbock. I'm not sure what they were going for... not bad, but they really missed the style mark.

Poured into a pint glass.

3.75 A: Moderately hazed amber orange color. Three fingers of pillowy beige head. Retention is about average and lots of lacing is left.

3.75 S: Big citrusy component in this - tons of mango, orange, papaya. Rich caramel and toffee maltiness. Grapefruit and some pine.

3.5 T: Like the nose, big citrus with a strong malt backbone. Fruit trio mentioned above, caramel and toffee. Unfortunately this has some cooked vegetables in there, which their IPA also had.

3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Slightly creamy and smooth enough.

3.25 D: It tastes pretty good overall, but I have to dock it some points due to the off flavors.
