Orange-amber color, nice white head .Aroma of citrus hops. Great balanced taste with malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness in finish. Grapefruits bitterness in aftertaste. Decent ABV , but easy to drink.

A delicious DIPA, that gets better with every sip. It's right in the mix of top tier DIPA's with Pliny the Elder and Hopslam, among other. What really sets this one apart is that it is so balanced, so smooth. Far too many DIPA's kick you in the teeth with hop overload. The color is excellent and the nose is a fantastic subtle piney/floral aroma. head and lacing are what exactly what one would expect of a quality brew, it paints my Founders tulip and stays there through the end. Nice! It's great out of the bottle in Michigan and even better out of the tap in No Cal.

I love this beer and despite the fact that I have to drive to Chicago (hate that city) am excited to make a trip to taste this again fresh from the tap.
