A: Poured from the bomber into a Duvel tulip. Body is orangey-amber that is more bright orange when backlit. Small (half-finger) whitish head on top. No real lacing, but some occasional "legs" of foam on the glass.
S: Not as strong in the nose as I was expecting. Some sweet malt and a touch of juicy, citrusy hops.
T: Fairly sweet malt foundation, then citrus - juicy oranges and sweet clementines. Finishes with lemony pine bitterness. Some spice noted - likely from the alcohol. Warmth from the alcohol is noted in the belly after a few sips. Lingering modest bitterness offsets the general sweet impression somewhat.
M: Medium in heft. Carbonation is modest, leaving a slightly slick feel at times.
O: I like this as a departure from the normal 7% IPAs you come across. Sweeter than expected, with more of a juicy, orange-ish citrus as opposed to grapefruit. Reminds me of Stoudt's DIPA; think of it as a little sibling to that East Coast DIPA with the orange color and flavors. Easy drinker for 7% ABV.
