A: Great clear orange with a thick head that dissipates quickly leaving some light lace on the glass.
S: Floral, herbal, dank hops. Some light citrus? A bit underwhelming considering the amount of hops involved. Doesn't stick around.
T: Some citrus, good bitterness, strong hop flavor. Alcohol, maybe a bit too much at times.
M: Medium mouth-feel, slightly syrupy, but not cloying. Light carbonation.
O: A good, solid DIPA that won't do you wrong, but not quite up to the hype, IMO. Could be a little more balance. If you really like hops, kind of hard to argue against it though.
