This beer pours a cloudy orange color, with a thick yellowish head that fades very slowly, leaving a nice lace.
This beer has a pleasent citrus, grapefruit like aroma. I can detect a slight pine scent as well. I smell a very slight spicy aroma as well. Maybe coriander.
This beer tastes like it smells. Citrusy grapefruit with some pine. There is no tea flavor present.
This beer is highly carbonated. It leaves a citrusy hop aftertaste. The alcohol is well hiden in both the aroma and the flavor.
This beer wouldnt make the best session beer. It is high in alcohol, making it hard to put down many, and the flavor is aggressively hopped.
Overall: This beer is decent, but nothing special. I would probably drink it again, but I wouldnt seak it out. Many better DIPA's out there.
