look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Beer pours a dark copper with a finger of loose off white foam. Head dissipates quickly to a thin collar along the edges with minimal lacing. Not much carbonation visible.

Nose is pine and grapefruit, caramel, and a bit of alcohol.

Taste follows the nose, big hit of pine and grapefruit bitterness, mellowing into a caramel malt sweetness and alcohol. Lingering grapefruit bitterness on the tongue with some malt sweetness.

Medium body, a little syrupy with low carbonation that lightly tickles the tongue. A bit of alcohol warmth in the back of the throat that lingers after a couple of sips. Not exceptionally bitter, mostly a decent DIPA.
