Pours a golden orange. TWo or three bubbling inches of off-white foam head. Serious foam here.

Smells ... fairly mild, given the name. Some sweet malt, some pine, a bit of randomized citrus. Good, but not overwhelming.

Taste is similarly meh. I mean, this is a good beer. And for 3.15 a 22 oz'er, I might be getting it alll the time. Mellow citrus, some nice malt giving it an interesting backbone for a dipa, a kind of earthy pine. Nothing really leaps out at me. Really more of a double pale than anything else.

Nice bubbly mouthfeel.

A: Copper color body with a hint of haze to it. Head is off white and about a 1 finger depth. Good amount of lacing and medium head retention.

S: a good balance of malt and hop bitterness.

T: same as smell.

M: the solid malt profile makes this one a touch thicker when it comes to mouthfeel.

D: A good IPA when you are in the mood for a slight malt profile. Hops still deliver though!

Poured a nice orange color with good carbonation and a nice white head. Nose is malty, chewy and floral, perhaps some citrus hops. Taste is booze, malty, bread even, nice hop feel with a good amount of booze. Mouthfeel is big hops, bitterness medium to end, floral and citrus. Pretty good.
