A hazy, amber-rust, with a fast-going head that sticky's up the glass.

A wholly anonymous aroma, quiet, very reserved. I mean it's hard to get anything in the nose. Some wine-like fruit, candy shell. That's about all, folks.

In the mouth the fruit steps forth as navel orange and pineapple, turning to tart lemonade in the middle. White grapefruit rind bitterness in the long finish. A little sweetness lingers. The 8.5% alcohol is there, but not calling attention to itself.

I wish there were more malt, caramel malt would be nice. The sweet fruit provides balancing. I just wish it were more grainy.

Best by 04/2014:

Pours hazed orange amber with a foamy off-white head that stays. Ample lacing sticks.

The smell is of citrus, pine, caramel and black pepper.

The taste is of sweet caramel and resin with medicinal/aspirin-ish bitterness in the finish.

It just hits full-bodied. It is chewy and very smooth with a carbonation level that fits it well.

This is a satisfying DIPA. Appropriately strong with lingering hop bitterness.
