Very fresh straight from the brewery tap.
Hazy amber color with a thick head with short retention.
Relative light aroma with sweet toasted malt, pine, passion fruit and orange marmalade.
Flavor with lots of honey and tropical fruits. Notes of spices, lots of tangerines, caramels, pineapple juice, pine and resin. Very dry and bitter aftertaste.
Full body with mild carbonation. Somewhat sticky. Amazing alcohol of 9.5% abv is superbly well hidden.
Nice DIPA, a bit quite sweet as some DIPA regularly are, but still has a nice flavor and balance that keeps it pleasant to sip through out the degustation.
