Well-balanced hoppy brew with a clean piney fragrance. Beautiful bright golden amber color with a nice pile of foam in the tumbler. Crisp mouthfeel with a substantial malty body. Aroma is a breeze through the pines with a hint of cucumber.

Solid pale malt flavor with just enough sweetness. Big hops with a grapefruit peel taste. Some dark notes with the bitter finish. A little woody, cedary, and some resins in the back of the throat. Overall, a highly drinkable strong brew that doesn't overdo the powerful hops. Aromatic and not excessively bitter.

This pours a nice tan caramel. There's a slightly rustic and grainy orange aroma. The flavor is dry with a long bitterness. Lightly citrus. Tastes faded from its former glory.

Well-balanced, crisp and clean. nice citrus taste, piney aroma. Easy drinking, you could easily put a few of these back.
Haven't had a bad beer from these guys yet. Cheers

Overall this was an above average double ipa. Whiffs of tropical fruit, orange Julius, and sweet malt. The taste has a nice hop bite but enough citrus (more orange and tangerine) and a bit of biscuit and just a touch of sweetness on the swallow. Aftertaste is a nice grapefruit rind kick. Wasn't expecting much, but not a bad DIPA.
