On draft, pours a clear dark golden color with amber hues, wispy white head.

The nose is sweet malts, caramel, citrus hops and dried fruit. A little pineapple. The alcohol is apparent in the nose and in the taste. When you first sip, it feels juicy, but the bitterness and caramel take over, leaving you with a mouthful of bitter hops which dominate the citrus grapefruit and tropical fruits note. This is a bit sweeter than I like my double IPA's, but it is an old-style traditional that stays true to what it is.
