The body appears a cloudy, orange-amber body with a lasting, thick, chunky, sticky head (4.0). Malt grain aroma with a stale orange aroma (4.0). Malty, fruity, bitter flavors - well-mixed together (3.75). Medium-heavy body; thick yet smooth; semi-dry finish (3.75).

A fine IIPA with a big dried citrus fruit character backed with a solid malt backbone and sweetness. Deep and complex yet very approachable, fans of big malt-forward beers and well-balanced hop bitterness should appreciate this offering.
