Pours amber with a one finger foamy white head, with good retention and lacing. The aroma has a lot of caramel malt, along with some tangerine and grapefruit.

tastes much like it smells with caramel, tangerine, and grapefruit. There is not a lot of hop taste at first sip, but there is a pretty strong bitterness at the end.

Medium to full bodied with low carbonation. Not bad, but not a top DIPA in my opinion.

This beer has some of my favorite hops in it and Avery balances the 3 incredibly. Solid malt foundation provides an excellent base, rich hearty and full bodied, touch of sweetness with faint notes of caramel and burnt sugar. The heavy body plays off the Chinook really well bringing out fruity berry notes and sugared fruit bowl. Columbus has a big assertive bitterness on the back end which lingers along with alcohol warmth and a touch of the malt sweetness. Centennial pulls the beer together, providing citric rind and pine flavors that merge the super fruity chinook presence and the intense columbus flavors.
