A: clear medium gold body, a few fingers of off-white head; smattering of lace behind

S: citrus and herbs, notes of spice and flowers

T: lots of citrus suggesting orange and grapefruit, herbs and hints of spice pepper the ale; malt grain caramel sweetness and body balance out the hops nicely

M: medium-weight, slight carbonation, slightly slick, bittering up front and on the finish, slight chew

O: really great stuff - features Nugget and Summit hops - a real tight, crisp and delicious DIPA. Git sum.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Hazy gold orange body, with a small white head that laces expansively.

S - Quiet malt and mild fruit esters. A line of pith.

T - Strong bitter brew, with opening of grapefruit, underpinning of sweet honey malt notes. Mid-point cuts bitter, and the close continues that direction, until a mild spike of fruit in the fade.

M - Moderate carbonation, significant drying, some building of hop oils.

O - Decent IIPA, and certainly one that hides the significant alcohol within. Satisfying.
