22 oz. bottle, served in tulip glass. Pours a clear golden color with a frothy, off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is a caramel maltiness, bread, a little bit nutty, big citrus, grapefruit, and pine hops. Flavor is caramel, grain, bread, a bit of wood, citrus, and pine. Mouthfeel is medium, syrupy initially but drying and bitter upon finish. Very good beer, well balanced, smooth drinker, clean.

My first try for this brewery. Pours a nice golden orange, with a thin head. Very nice lacing. Smell is great! Super Juicy. Great smells of pineapple, grapefruit, oranges. Taste is has great crisp bite, of hop and more juicy grapefruit. Nice tiny hit of bitter that keeps this a good thirst quencher. Very impressed at how well the alchohol is hidden. Maybe the best DIPA i have had as far as hiding the booze and making this a great drinker.
Go and get a bottle of this!

A - Pours a golden honey with a two finger tan head. Head dissipates at a good pace leaving a little slippery lace...

S - Lots of citrus fruits and caramel. Smells pretty sweet. Some hoppy notes come through, but they are very subdued...

T - Good dose of sweet malts up front; caramel being the most prominate. Also pick up grapefruit, mango, oranges, and various other citrus fruits. Ends with a good amount of pine, and some lingering caramel. Interesting balance between bitter and sweet in the finish. Abv is very well hidden...

M - Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Pretty smooth...

O - For the abv this one goes down extremely smooth. A little sweeter than I was anticipating, but nothing that takes away from the integrity of the brew. Definitely something I will revisiting again in the near future...

Cheers...
