12oz bottle in a stemmed tulip glass.

A- poured an effervescent copper-amber color, slight haze, 1F linen white colored head that left wispy lacing.

S- Citrus hops up front, sugared grapefruit. Some earthiness with the mild warming alcohol, like herbs and a touch of onion.

T- Big malt flavor with some alcohol singe to start. Citrus hops and a touch of sweets catch up.

M- Lots of body, syrupy, tingly carbonation. Dry hoppy pucker finish.

O- Excellent. Not too sweet or boozy, which is a pleasant surprise from an IPA above 8.0% abv. Much easier to drink than many other big IPAs that I've tried, and still packs a punch.

As it warms it gets quite boozy, but nice and cold it's incredible.
