look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

on tap in a tegu glass
thin head soapy lacing, very cloudy orange color
aroma is citrus and candy
taste is pretty sweet apricot, gummies, orange life savers
mouth feel is thick and sweet no hint of
any bitterness
hides the 9% abv well. I thought it was a tasty DIPA very smooth and easy drinking.

A: Flash of burnt honey. Well laced.

S: Tin candy chews, Welch's apricot gummies, sour strawberry daiquiri, lime and sweeter citrus.

M: Bright minerality. Med bodies. Warming given the time.

T: Peach skins, pineapple! Apricot, apricot, apricot. It's a sea of nectar with some pine and cranberry thrown into the mix.

Nice to get some more Grimm hoppy brews out West here - hop candy is a perfect description for this DIPA hazy. Pours murky, hazy dirty orange color, big head with great retention and lacing. Smells and tastes like sweet fruit candy. Smooth medium feel without bitterness.

I'm digging the unique flavors, and the overall quality compares to the best hazy producers out here such as ASB, Moonraker, Fieldwork, etc.

Pours hazy. Not sure what hops are used in this beer but, it has a funky taste that i'm not a big fan of (& the can was fresh) kind of the a candy taste. This beer is solid with potential but, overall not worth buying again.
