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

Appearance: It has a nice deep hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of grapefruit, floral hops, some pine, honey and sweet biscuity/caramelly malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some citrus/grapefruit, herbal notes, a piney bitterness and some sweet toasty/caramelly malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas. Very nice for a single hopped DIPA.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours an off white head which tipped off its malty taste.
S: Spicy banana and coconut biscuit
T: The above with overall spicy and savory flavors balanced by sweet malts
M: Spritzy and full, a little heavier than you'd expect on an IPA
O: Unique and intense taste, finishing with a refreshing hoppy bite. I will certainly reach for it again.

It pairs deliciously with spicy pepperoni pizza.
