Poured into Dogfish IPA glass

A-hazy golden tint, fluffy white head, very thick lacing that clings to glass

S-Bursting with citrus tropical hops...grapefruit, orange

T-follows the nose with some slight pine to it. lots of grapefruit with a somewhat bitter finish

M-more carbonated than other DIPA's, creamy medium bodied,

O-very drinkable, smooooth, very sessionable despite ABV, completely balanced no one aspect of the beer dominates

Serving type: can
