Pours a transparent golden amber with a nice frothy white head that kept around for the entire glass with good lacing. It smells delicious, with strong citrus notes, grapefruit, delicious hoppy joy. The taste was great as well. It's bitterness is extremely apparent and it slams you in the face with citrus goodness. The bitterness stays with you for some time, making the enjoyment of this beer a prolonged experience and a lot of enjoyment. Low carbonation and a decent body on this one.

A - Copper red with 2 finger of head and nice sticky lace all over the glass all the way down!

S - Citrus hops dominate. Very hoppy. Excellent aroma

T - Grapefruit bitter hops up front, and then the citrus hops kick in. VERY well balanced. Very smooth.

M - Medium to full bodied. Highly carbonated. Kinda an oily aftertaste.

O - An excellent DIPA. I will be buying this one again and again
