Aroma is pine, fruit and an undercurrent of malts. The flavor is citrus, grapefruit, an undercurrent of malts and a dryish and a smooth (for an IIPA) finish.

Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. A foamy lattice of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Tiny particles of sediment are seen suspended in the beer after the pour. Smell is of brown sugar, citrus fruit, and candied citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet citrus fruit, citrus zest, and brown sugar flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice balance between sweet brown sugar and citrus forward hop aspects.

Serving type: bottle.

Solid beer, obviously a lot of hops and everything that comes with that. I found it to be balanced and drinkable, not everyone feels that way. The hops linger for about an hour on the palate. It is tamer than I thought it would be considering the IBU. In my opinion this is in the top 5 of the DIPA's I have tasted. Would buy again.
