Pours a golden copper color with a slight haze. The stark white dense head stays around for a very long time and leaves an incredible amount of think lace and a thick coat.
The aroma is a wonderful mingling of pine and grapefruit hops, tangerine and caramel sweetness.
The hop flavor of grapefruit, oranges, tangerine and pine all come roaring in with the first sip. This is followed a big sweetness of caramel and simple syrup. Middle to end brings a big bitter hit that lingers through to the finis and further. Subsequent sips bring more depth of grapefruit, pink, white and ruby red juice. The pine also emerges in the finish. Tropical fruit also begins to emerge as the beer warms up.
Medium body with vibrant carbonation. The bubbles carry the bitterness to the hard palate and the back of the mouth. The hop oils coat the mouth as well.
Overall, this is one fine beer. One of the best double IPAs I have had.
