The head is best described from the three separate pours to give me "a proper pint." This settles to minute layer of bubbles, but leaves a cross between blanketing and spotty lace. The liquid is golden and cloudy.
A combination of floral and grapefruit rind smelling hops.
Surprisingly well-balanced for a DIPA. Solid pale malt start where one can detect the moderate toast of the kilned malt. The hop is the predominant flavor thereafter without much distinction--simply bitter. Full bodied which is accentuated by the lower effervescence.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a light orange with little head. It's clear with no sediment.
Smells really awesome. Grapefruit and resin stickiness. Definitely smells like citra hops.
Taste is bitter all around. Really different from the aroma, in a good way though. Medium bodied and kind of sticky. I was expecting it to be dryer. But it's got a wet feel with a slight malt backbone. A very hoppy beer all around.
Overall this is a good beer. Impressed with this brewery so far.
