Poured from bottle to Guinness glass.

A: Nice amber color with a one inch off-white head.

S: Lots of citrus, mainly orange and some lemon, and also very floral. Lots going on in this one.

T: For an I-IPA it wasn't as overwhelming as I expected. I'm more of trappist guy and this one I was afraid of. I heard it was very rare and good, but I wasn't sure, it lived up to the hype. Lots of hops, but with some lemon again and the vibrate earthiness.

M: Dances around and then bam the hops come out.

D: I could drink a few of these for sure. Lots of hops but with the citrus it is all good. Exceptional I-IPA. Everyone must try this one.

Serving type: bottle
