4/5 rDev -3.1%
[Best served in a Tulip glass]
The pour was a murky medium copper orange with a large (2-3 finger) rocky cream colored head that had decent retention, finally reducing to a thin layer of residue with some excellent sheeting of sticky lacing.
The aroma was of a toasted grain malt, pine and floral hops and a mildly sweet yeast with notes of citrus (grapefruit / peel), toffee, caramel and a mild alcohol tinge.
The taste was bitter sweet and a tad malty with a hint of toffee early on, with the taste becoming a bit hoppier and having a strong grapefruit presence and a mild citrus peel bitterness towards the end. The flavor lingered for a good while with the taste of citrus and hops settling nicely on the taste buds, meanwhile a mild alcohol warming sensation just added to the enjoyment of this tantalizing brew.
Mouthfeel was almost medium in body with a dry oily texture and a good lively carbonation.
Overall a DIPA with a well balanced blending of flavors that created a smooth sweet bitter taste, which made this a very enjoyable and drinkable brew.

Pours a deep copper color with a thin and fizzy beige head that burns off quickly. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Citrus and floral hops in the nose. Medium-bodied and moderately bitter with floral hops, grapefruit and earthy malt flavors. The finish is hoppy with some citrus and pine aftertaste that lingers awhile. Pretty solid IIPA all around.
