Clear gold/orange with a thick white cap of fine bubbles. Good head retention with plenty of sticky, clumpy lacing. Hoppy aroma, lots of pine and citrus, grapefruit, pith, pineapple, tropical, really fruity with some sweetness backing it up. The flavour was fairly balanced, some bitterness up front followed by sugary and malty sweetness, with citrus and fruity hops at the end. A bit of warmth in the finish, lingering orange and pine bitterness. Full to heavy body with medium/low carbonation, sticky, mild alcohol. Decent, but a little on the sweet and sugary side, which hid a bit of the hop and alcohol character.

Poured into a pint glass from 650ml bottle.

A- clear, light copperish with thin head that rapidly disappears.

S- you know this is going to have some hop attitude. Strong citrus and pine right in your face

T- unfortunately disappointing for me. Started out pleasantly hoppy but got soapy and oddly sweet in the aftertaste.

M- nothing worth complaining about, typical for an IIPA

O- yea like I said, a little off for me. The sweetness of the malt and the hops clashed. Not even close to a drain pour, but not even close to a repeat purchase
