12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

T- sweet malts, brown sugar, honey, floral hops, grapefruit, pine, and orange peel

M- creamy medium body medium carbonation with lingering bitterness

O- enjoyable double IPA that is surprisingly sweet and not to hoppy. Very nice
Balance. I'm a big fan of Oddsides beers!
