A - Extremely hazy gold approaching amber. Moderate carbonation with a white head that fades rapidly to a coating.

S - Lots of hop aroma, tons of citrus with some sweet tropical fruit. Hidden behind the hops is a light but solid malt profile with some sweetness left behind.

T - Much like the aroma but the tropical and luscious sweet hop flavors take charge with some citrus on the finish. Nicely balanced with a large malt bill balances the extreme hop presence while staying in the background.

M - Moderate body, a bit heavy for an American DIPA, definitely coats your mouth. Would like it to be a bit more crisp.

O - Solid American DIPA, will definitely fill my growler there again. Not the best you will find, but the place has their fans...driving down that dirt road to the brewery must make them feel hardcore.

From a growler. Not sure if the growler just had issues, but this just was a supreme disappointment.

Pour is hazed golden yellow with a fairly tight white head. Nose has a light grain up front with grapefruit and citrus, faint pine and a touch herbal. Taste is fruitier and the citra is much more pronounced. Lots of tropical fruits and mango finishing with some lightly bitter grapefruit and notes of hop resin. Body is a bit fuller and softer carbonation. Soft and a touch grainy.
