Hazy dark orange with a short living white head, just some poor lacing and a few bubbly specks linger.
Smell of pine and grapefruit, leafy green, a tiny bit dank. Caramel and nice biscuit malt. Really faint tropical notes, mostly just pine and biscuit (old bottle, again?!).
Nice bittersweet citrus start, rich with the stuff, lots of orange, lime, grapefruit, juice, peel, pulp and all that. Just a bit of peach and mango. Slightly sweet biscuity malts, not enough to punch through the citrus crispness. Pine seals the deal, grass, spicy leafiness, nice dry bitter hop finish.
Medium body, somewhat thick and unfiltered, medium carbonation. A great deal of hops in the aftertaste, green, bitter, with just some citrus peel.
A generously hopped IPA, compensating on the lack of complexity, but that might also be on me (bottle could be old, can't find any dates on it). Nice.
