A-Pours hazy blonde/light amber with 1/3 inch of creamy eggshell white head. Leaves rings of sticky lacing.

S-Piney with light pale malt sweetness. Aromas of grapefruit and Dole canned pear juice.

T/M-Muted citrus/tropical fruit hop flavors.The body is round and sweet. Never gets too malty, but not terribly hoppy either. Finish is dry with a warming quality.

O-Would prefer a more assertice hop profile. Pretty good.

A- Nice fruity aroma from the hops, mango/grapefruit. Just maybe a hint from the aroma that it is a higher ABV. Nice caramel malt aroma as well.

A- Clear copper/gold, thin white head that dissipated pretty quickly. Carbonation rising through the middle of the glass.

F- Definite carbonation hit to the roof of the mouth. Spicy off the bat, and through the finish! Heat after the swallow I would guess from the alcohol. Almost of little bit of pepper type bite through the finish.

M- Higher carbonation level than I would have thought and the elevated alcohol level is definitely apparent with the warmth/burn. Coats the mouth thoroughly, yet dry finish.

O- Generally like the big DIPAs to be a little smoother, though this one actually is quite refreshing. Aftertaste left me a bit off.
