12oz bottle served in a Sierra Nevada IPA glass

A - Pours copper/amber color with a thick sandy head. Healthy cap and collar with sheets of impressive lacing.

S - Deep buttery malts, very bready, caramel candy sweetness, hints of orange cream.

T - Pine hops start things off with hints of mandarin orange flavors. Sweet and sticky malt backing, roasted crystal barley, dry grassy hops show up in the middle as the bitterness kicks up a notch. Finishes with a woody bitterness.

M - Thick feel, small-bubbled carbonation, full body, dry finish. Resinous hop oils left on the aftertaste.

Strong malt backing with plenty of sticky pine hops makes for a delicious, robust, and balanced DIPA. Alcohol is 100% unnoticeable. Just an all-around solid brew.
