16 oz can poured into a Surly Darkness chalice
A: Pours a hazy orange that you would expect from a great DIPA. With a brilliant white head, that leaves slightly lacing.
Smell: Bursting with grapefruit, pine, hops and other strong citrus scents.
Taste: Simply amazing, exploding with citrus and pine all over the place. The perfect balance of bitterness and sweetness with this one. Though the sweetness is more of a bittersweet. The taste lingers, but when it dissipates you want to go back for another sip immediately. Hides the 9% as if its nothing at all.
Mouthfeel: Very full, especially for a DIPA. Rather resiny, but in the best sense of the word. Slight carbonation.
Overall: This beer is absolutely amazing, hands down my favorite DIPA. Given it's drinkability, it's price and 2-4 month availability, this may actually be my favorite beer of all time.
Serving type: can
