A: Hazy amber in color with a great white/tan colored, creamy head. Laces the glass nicely.

S: Hoppy,herbs...

T: Not nearly as hoppy as many od the Double IPA's that I've been having lately, actually a pleasant change! I'm enjoying this more than I had expected. Bitter enough with some citrusy flavors and a pleasant piney taste as well. The ABV level is somewhat hidden in this beers overall flavoring, so be careful!

Mouthfeel: Nicely smooth, really pleasant.

Pallet Wrecker may be overstating it a bit, but it's a fine IPA that I will enjoy again!

Appearance - A clear copper/orange color with a half inch, off-white, cream colored head that appears to be bubbly/frothy. Some carbonation can be seen rising from the bottom of glass and lacing is retained around the edges.

Aroma - The smell is well blended combination of grapefruit, pine, and orange.

Taste - This is very similar to the aroma. From the hops, you have grapefruit and pine that adds to the bitterness of the beer; plus, sweetness arises from the orange flavors and malt backbone.

Mouthfeel - Carbonation hits the tongue followed by a smooth, sticky bitterness that accompanies the medium bodied beer.

Overall - Very flavorful, beautifully crafted by a great brewery. Perfect for all the hop heads out there!
