Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden.

A - Pours clear golden yellow with a small half finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving thin sheets of lace down the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of fresh cut grass, pine resin, mild tropical fruit, bit of sugary sweetness and some very light booze. Hops are moderately strong but never border on overpowering.

T - Starts off with some grassy hops and mild sugary sweetness quickly being joined by the dulled tropical fruit, pine resin, dash of chewy pale malt and a touch of booze. Finish has some bitterness and sweetness to it with some lingering dryness.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Hoppy, sweet feel from start to finish. Only the faintest hint of the 10% ABV is present.

O - Despite the 10% this one is definitely on the lighter side of the DIPA scale. It is well balanced but I wish it had a bit more pop to it. Either way a solid DIPA.
