A - Pours a really nice, golden orange/copper color with a slighty off-white head. Lacing is thin, but sticks nicely to the glass.

S - Lots of citrus, grapefruit and tangerine. I also get just a hint of pineapple, then you're hit with the the piney, hop aroma. The malts add a really nice, sweet aroma to balance this. I really dig the smell.

T - Wow. Great citrus, tropical and piney flavors balanced with sweet, caramel malt. It's definitely hoppy, but the malts in the middle balance this out so well. It's delicious.

M - Medium carbonation. Surprisingly dry and crisp for a DIPA with a little heat on the finish. There's just a little resiny taste that lingers. Just not at all what I'm used to from a DIPA, and I really enjoy it.

O - An incredible DIPA. The hops and malts are balanced incredibly well, and the alcohol is well hidden. You get a DIPA with delicious flavors that doesn't destroy your palate. This beer deserves recognition as one of the best DIPAs out there.

Had this in a party keg at a park festival. Quite nice. Beautiful red-orange color with a white head. Nice hop aroma. What is notable about this DIPA is the heavy-duty malt backbone of this beer. You don't really get DIPAs with that nice complex maltiness. I loved it, quite a bit of a departure from current trends. Almost a bit veering towards amber colored. FInished well, good malt stickiness to finish. Pleasant alcohol level. Hops were good and American, classic American hop flavors, citrus, pine, resin, grapefruit-overall classic American flavor.
