A - Darker amber, opaque, finger head, altho not much head.

S - Sweet carmel, grapefruit, lemon

T - Sweet hops. Almost a toffee? Bitter initially, sweet finish. Very very good. ABUs hidden superbly.

M - Frothy, thick, love the malt used.

O - Glorious. Flavors shifting is excellent. Very good feel. Best IIPA I've had to date. Highly recommended.

12oz : tulip
bottled on:

Clear, bright copper with a foamy off white head, light lacing.

Big citric, grapefruit notes and piney hops. Light boozy heat in the finish.

Medium body, with very slight mouth coating feel. Prickly carbonation.

A well done DIPA, right about average though overall. Enjoyable, but nothing particularly memorable or exciting about it.

Pours a glowing copper with a thick white head. Reflects beautifully in the light. Aroma is pine/resin, fruity, and floral. Taste is nicely balanced and complex. Just the right amount of bitterness and sweetness and nothing overpowering. Pineapple, grapefruit, and tangerine supported by sweet malt. Feel is smooth, elegant, dry, and moderate in body. Lures you in and alcohol can sneak up on you if you're not careful. Definitely a classic from FW.
