Good seems dry DIPA. I would like a slightly sweeter finish. It does have a little, slight sweet kick but not much.

Only The Younger can eclipse this sampling of perfection.

Smooth with a good finish on the pallet

Delicate floral, grapefruit aroma, medium to high carbonation, nice sharp flavor very hoppy but great undertones of malt to mellow out. Great bitter aftertaste that lingers but not too harsh. High alcohol but wouldn't know it by its dynamic flavor without knocking over head

Agree with Jeff, younger is better. But you can never go wrong with this delightfully smooth, yet full bodied ale. Brewed to perfection with a complex and well balanced flavor.

A pine bomb. That's what this is. It's like having a tree explode in your mouth and sinuses. So offensively good.

Good but there are a lot better out there. It's not a hop head beer. But tasty !
