I bought a 6pck of this from Binny's. It poured a clear orangish with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent had touches of tangerine peel. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. It started with a ripe tangerine flare then turned slightly spicy. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid beer.

I finally was able to grab this at my local Binny's and I am super excited to finally try it. I've been wanting this for a while now and finally getting the chance to review it.

This beer pours a glowing amber hue that features light carbonation and a very persistent head that is off white in color with a slight orange tint and a thick frothy (almost creamy) appearance. 4.25/5 The aroma is quite sharp but slightly sweet and nicely strong with a good dose of caramel and sweet grains but an even stronger dose of hops. The hops come through as citrus, floral, and tropical with notes of grapefruit, mango, papaya, pineapple, and just a bit of pine resin at the end. 4/5 The flavor profile is very hop forward with just a bit of caramel and sweet, toasted bread at the front. This quickly gives way to grapefruit, lemon rind, mango, papaya, and pineapple before the pine resin comes in to finish things off. The flavor is nice and strong with a moderate to high bitterness that lingers for quite some time on the finish. 4.25/5 This is a medium bodied IPA that has moderately lively carbonation, but not too much. It is somewhat prickly and slightly drying with a light lingering dryness. 4/5 This is a very well crafted IPA that is full of hop flavors and it really hits the spectrum of hops quite nicely. It is not crazy bitter, instead focusing on the flavors of the hops that come through other than the bitterness. 4/5

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a copper color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of pine, resin, banana. Taste is piney, resin, light pineapple, malts are present, alcohol well hidden, moderate bitterness. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but I was expecting a bit more.

12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours golden with nice clarity and transparency with bubbles racing upwards; big fluffy white head that slowly falls leaving great thick retention and very nice lacing. The aromas are subtle, but solid. It's floral with some hints of melon. Malts are there along with some fresh grass. Mild hints of citrus as well. The flavors are clean, crisp and refreshing. More subtle floral and citrus notes. More melon with some hints of grapefruit. Mild lemon and lime notes. More fresh grass. Slightly earthy. Solid bitterness, but not over the top. Malts do their thing. Finishes dry for the most part. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's medium-bodied with active carbonation. It's very fluffy, smooth and easy to drink.

This is a solid DIPA. It's not flashy, but it's well done. Not bad at all.

Better than I thought it would be, to be honest. Very drinkable at 8.2%. Glad I was able to try it and a big thanks to my friend for the free can!

Slightly hazy yellow-orange body, fizzy solid white head, plenty of carbonation, dots of lace. Nose is dank, lemony, mineraly, orangish, mango. Taste steps back and offers a good mix of hops but less nuanced and clear. Bitterness is mild, perhaps overly balanced by the malt sweetness which has stealthy flavor (read: next to none, just a toasty hint). I miss that dank element, it's one of my favorites. Body is medium, slightly coarse carbonation, a bit syrupy.
Well made IPA with good potency and a strong advocate for experimental hops. Especially for an anniversary beer, this was not bold nor original, but it was tasty and crafty. Cheers, congratulations on 20 solid years!
