16 oz. can poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy deep orange body. Big white head. Nice lacing in the glass.

Smell - Musty piney hop aroma. Some grapefruit. Caramel and toasty malt.

Taste - Grapefruit. Lots of caramel malt. Some bready malt too. Intense hop bitterness. Grassy bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Incredibly bitter. Medium heavy.

Overall - Way out of balance. Aggressively bitter.

Another gift from my son in Texas. Poured from a 16 oz can, shows a somewhat cloudy amber color with a thick, off-white head that had nice lacing thru out the consumption of the beer. The aroma is like a freshly cut spruce bough. The first sip rendered a pine and grapefruit flavor with some other citrus flavors mixed in. Although this DIPA clocks in at 9% abv there is no alcoholic burn at all - remarkably smooth! There is some bitterness on the backend, but nothing that overwhelms the rest of the flavor. I found this beer to be deeelicious, and would gladly search it out the next time I am in Texas.
