look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 16 oz can into a teku glass.

Pours a foggy amber color with 2 fingers of fluffy off-white head. The head has excellent retention, leaving a few spots of patchy lacing before settling into a blanket of foam.

The aroma brings plenty of grapefruit, orange rind, and sticky pine. The malt is present but only just.

The flavor is all about that earthy pine, with notes of grapefruit, orange pithe, and overripe mangoes. There's some sweet caramel malt hanging out in the back.

The feel is medium bodied with pretty lively carbonation. Nicely crisp, yet creamy with a bitterness that gently coats the tongue.

Overall, a great West coast style DIPA that is deliciously fruity with a bitter hop punch that knocks you in the teeth. Nicely balanced and drinkable.

Had this on tap at Seymour in Greenfield. The beer had a burnt orange appearance with a large head that dissipated over time, leaving some patchy lacing. The aromas were mostly a yeasty-bready smell with a bitter flavoring to the taste. I did like how well carbonated the beer was; very crisp and great body. Overall, I found the beer ok, but pretty refreshing.

16oz can: this one pours a slightly hazy golden color. There was a small off white head that didn’t linger long but did leave some lacing. Nice nose! Tropical, citrus and some pine hops. This has a really nice flavor. There is a wonderful balance of the aforementioned hops. A fair amount of bitterness with a good malt body behind it. A really good DIPA. Worth searching out
