A - Light bronze color with a large, foamy, sticky, light, white head. Great retention leaving behind a thick layer of lacing.
S - Sweet candied orange and notes of grapefruit. Fair amount of caramel and toffee malt. Hints of pine resin. Balanced aroma,
T - Again fairly strong on the citrus although it isn't quite as sweet as the nose suggested. Hints of pine with a slight bitter finish. A bit more malty than the nose suggested with sticky caramel flavors being more than an afterthought.
M - Medium to light body with above average carbonation. Somewhat spritzy and somewhat sticky.
D - Balanced beer that drinks like a 1.5 IPA (not quite double). I had no problem finishing my glass and enjoyed sipping it, but it didn't wow me. Alcohol well hidden.
Notes: Solid beer. Was somewhere in between a regular IPA and a DIPA. I couldn't really find any flaws, but it didn't really stand out. Balanced and solid, especially for the price, but don't expect anything amazing or in your face as far as DIPAs go.
