A - Pours golden brown with three finger head that fades rather quickly with remains of foam lacing along sides of glass.
S - Pine, citrus, melon, orange, grapefruit. A tropical paradise.
T - Sticky citrus hops smack you right up front with a solid malt backbone to keep things in check. Alcohol warmth brings up the rear and lets itself known.
M - Light to medium mouthfeel. Hop resin sticks to your tongue and roof of mouth.
O - Very solid DIPA from Sierra Nevada. Very clean hop profile which I really like. This is better than I remember it from the bigger bottles. Amazingly drinkable for over 10% abv! Go grab yourself a 4 pack!
