Pale cloudy yellow gold in color with a nice head. Complex smell with a hint of fruits. Slightly bitter with a hoppy flavor with a ting fruitiness added to it, but the hoppy bitterness takes the lead. Finish leaves the residual flavor to linger.

L: A pale apricot murky hue, with a similar tinge to the four dense fingers of otherwise ivory head, nice retention and fades back like the foam in a root beer float. A solid wall of lace on the glass.

S: Wow sour limes dominate an otherwise mango and grapefruit brew. Intense and unique. A touch also of earthy papaya, and a nice bitter bite.

T: Nearly as good as it smells. Off dry and serious. I am impressed.

F: Smooth but spirited mouthfeel. Medium to heavy weight for the ABV, but not overbearing.

O: Totally must try. Why did I buy just one? Still underrated at 4.37! It’s either right up my alley, or generally amazing.

I've tried a number of LIC Beer Project offerings at this point. They're all nice, and this is one of my favorites. Compared with Kingsguard, another favorite of mine, this one's got a lot more hop punch and resiny finish to it, while still maintaining a complex fruit palate underneath. Personally not quite as high on my list, but if you like more bitterness on the palate, and a little more of an oily, syrupy mouthfeel, this beer's an excellent option.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on October 16, 2019. Oat imperial IPA brewed with El Dorado, Mosaic and Vic Secret hops. Aromas of strawberry, floral bouquet and guava. Soft on the palate with a strong, clean finish.

Pours cloudy brass with a diminutive head that leaves plenty of lace on the glass. The aroma is of apricot, lemon and rosewater with some breast malts in there. The taste is dripping with juicy tangerine, tropical hops - very dank and highly hopped. A subdued malt ballast reminds me this is beer and not hop tea. The mouthfeel is full bodied with textured, light carbonation and lots of hop oils coating my mouth. High bitterness and everlasting citrus and tropical hop flavours in the finish.

This is a fantastic, super juicy DIPA. Complex and also crushable. Excellent and highly recommended.

Super cloudy golden body with two fingers of white foam and agressive lacing. Aromas of pineapple, guava, papaya, mango, lime, with dry hops, lemon zest, and dankness. Taste is more bitter, in fact the bitterness is the best part, really letting the hops dominate most of the sip, with the tropical fruit emerging from their wake by the end. However, the dry hops as it warms get more into brief glimpses of soapiness that detract. Feel has great dry hops with general haziness, finishes very dry after starting moderately moist, though as it warms there is a hint of hop burn. Great first offering form these guys
