Pours a pale amber color, pretty clear with only the slightest haze. A huge, 1-to-1 beer-to-head ratio on the first glass. Head is light tan in color with decent retention and leaves tons of sticky lace.
I love the smell of a freshly cracked IPA. Immediately after the cap is cracked for the first time, all the citrus and floral hops rush to get outside of the bottle, and the concentrating of the bottle nose effect makes them that much more intense. This bottle is no different, as soon as the cap is cracked, citrus and floral hops stream out of the bottle. Once in the glass, the citrus and floral hops take a back seat to spicey hops and sweet malts.
The citrus and floral hops I got in the nose are all but gone in the taste, replaced by dry resiny hop bitterness. A sweet malt backbone comes in to balance it out nicely. Finishes with an almost mint, spicey hop character. Lingering bitter aftertaste.
About medium in body, with a crisp carbonation and a light bitter bite. Drinkability is great.
Overall, a pretty good DIPA. Alcohol isn't noticeable at all, and it has some good hop flavors. I enjoyed it and I'll have it again.
