Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a big, fluffy white head that lingers and laces.
Smells of big grapefruit, citrus, pine, hop dankness and resin with just hint of bready malt. Big hop aroma that is all over the place in a good way.
Taste is up front tropical fruit/grapefruit that goes into a slightly boozy pine middle with some hop resin before finishing on a bitter kick with further stone/grapefruit notes with some malt and alcohol. Quite nice.
Medium body with medium carbonation works well. The alcohol is present, perhaps, a bit too much.
A good DIPA that has lighter fruit notes but is really a grapefruit bomb and has that house SN taste.
