look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear, light orange color with minimal head. Scent is of fruit, citrus and pine. Taste follows, with sweet dominant. Mouthfeel is above medium. Aftertaste that is equal parts sweet and bitter.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Poured from the half-growler into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is clear golden-orangey with no real head.

S: Nice nose of sweeter tropical fruit - think overripe melons, papaya - with a touch of candied orange peel.

T: Follows the nose, with sweeter flavors dominating. Brown sugary malt foundation, followed by overripe peaches & cantaloupe, with some ripe oranges, but then finishing with a touch of piney bitterness that keeps this from being a complete diabetic sugar-bomb of a nightmare. ABV heat felt in the belly after a couple sips.

M: Slick. Syrupy. Low carbonation.

O: OK for a DIPA, but I probably wouldn't get it again.

Canned July 2018; drank 8/15/18 @ the Yarchives.

See-through orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a big white head; a thick curtain of frothy lace.

Honeydew, pine, caramel & booze heat notes in the nose.

Medium thick, sticky mouthfeel.

Pine & caramel flavors up front; table sugar & booze heat notes on the finish.

An old-model IPA that's drinkable, if unpleasant.

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a snifter glass. Had an amber-gold color and a cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: An enticing aroma of hops, citrus fruit, malt, and pine.

T: Tasted of a little bit of malt (not overly pronounced), a good shot of dank hops, lots of citrus fruit (grapefruit, in particular), a mild amount of pine, and a light floral quality. This is a focused and complex flavor. More dank than the typical DIPA, but the fruit elements balance it out. Quite delicious.

F: A solid amount of carbonation with a vibrant finish. Medium-bodied.

O: One of the more enjoyable DIPAs I've tried recently. Sweet, powerful, and flavorful.

Poured from the tap into a tulip glass. The appearance is a lightly hazy golden amber color with a large white head. The aroma is mild floral notes and malt. The taste follows the nose.

16 oz can poured into a Pilsner glass.

Appearance
Golden blonde. Very slight haze. 1 finger of creamy white head. Light carbonation.

Nose
Peach syrup, pine, dank, honey, and candy sugar.

Taste
Peach syrup, pine sap, pine needle, and a sticky dankness. Grassy and earthy with some sharp grapefruit notes. Honey and candy sugar maltiness.

Mouthfeel
Medium-plus bodied, silky, oily, crisp, and juicy with a light bitterness.

Overall
This one is dank, pungent, and green. Bursting with flavor!

No canning date

Pours a semi-opaque golden copper with a big, two-finger off-white head.

Aroma of soft floral notes against malt-laden hops; clean, earthy pine makes a nice overall impression.

Taste brings in some good, deep resinous tones based in pine, earth, and hops; notes of soft peach, pine resin, cedar, grapefruit. and orange peel are also present; very earthy, but fleetingly dank, tropical, and sweet.

Now this is stellar: the mouthfeel levels a nice body with the balanced dankness to create something both potently crisp, earthy, and even juicy. The drinkability is excellent here, with absolutely no sign of the beer's 9% ABV.

This drinks like a great West-Coast IPA with some careful New England IPA leanings; dank and crisp, but soft and so drinkable. It's a big beer that takes no effort to drink, and really showcases how nuanced the resinous elements can become. A very enjoyable drink.
