Pours a nice clear light-amber colored body with a big creamy white head on top. Sierra knows how to make a good looking beer, no doubt.
Big piney and resiny hop aroma initially before the citrus and grapefruit get a chance to come in. Faint hint of alcohol underneath all the hops.
A potent and flavorful hop character hits the palate with a nice variety of grapefruit and orange citrus with a health dose of pine and floral notes alongside. The 10.4 Abv does come through a bit stronger than expected but it's not all that unpleasing. Little room is left for some malt character to come through.
Full bodied feel, rather thick compared to many a DIPA. Overall, a nice tasty hop-bomb from Sierra.
