A-tangerine with a thick white head that lasts a long time and leaves some amazingly thick lacing and also some cascading. Beautiful beer.

S-grapefruit peaches, citrus, and hops

T-bitter and bold, citrus and just a hint of pine, definitely grapefruit and a lingering hop bitterness. This is one intense beer.

M-Thick and chewy

D-To me this has a low drinkability its very, very heavy and full flavored. Its not as light as other versions of the style, it really weighs you down.

Overall, this is a good double ipa but not my favorite. I would love to try it on tap sometime.
