Served in a snifter glass.

Appearance: A hazy orange to amber body with medium bubbles within. Head with a hard pour is thick coming off a orange tinted white.

Smell: Potent floral scent, hovers your nostrils.

Taste: They weren't kidding when they named this beer, hard citrus like the most ultra bitter grapefruit that you have ever had. Sweet like one but packs this hard piney feel like it was dry hopped after that fact it was brewed.

Mouth: Sticky, and paired with bagel chips to break it down. Chewy finish that feel almost like a toasted bread.

Overall: You know right by my house there's this little mom and pop shop which has a crazy good selection of beers and the owner highly recommended this to me, Jesus the guy must know what I really love. It's bitter complex and offers everything that beyond meets the expectations of a DIPA. I would rate it a notch higher but has slight room for improvement. Maybe with proper aging it can. Salud!

Pours a nice finger head p. A dark amber orange color. Smells of a very robust hop combination with definite piney citrus smell and taste. A definite bite of alcohol and hoppy goodness. Finishes with a warm feel that lingers in back of throat. Definitely not for the faint of heart. A pretty smooth mid mouth feel. Pretty accurately named. I love this company more every time I try.
