Serving: 1 pint 6 oz bottle poured into an IPA glass.

Appearance: Bright, clear golden orange. Tall, sudsy head of white foam; leaves clumpy lace.

Smell: Pine, mint, and citrus rind with light honey sweetness and dank hops.

Taste: Plenty of citrus: orange and grapefruit zest, as well as some tropical fruit, pine resin and caramel sweetness. Balanced, lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium light body and moderate carbonation with a slightly oily feel.

Overall: Hop forward DIPA, but stays balanced enough to highlight citrus and herbal notes.

Short Review. This was a very nice DIPA, the hop profile was great, it tasted and smelled like pineapple orange juice and while it was pretty bitter it never got to overwhelming. I really like this beer and I need to track down a bottle to review.

A - Pours a clear golden orange with a one-finger creamy white head. Tons of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma of sweet orange, mango, grapefruit, and sweet caramel malts.

T - The taste follows the aroma. Lots of juicy orange, mango, and grapefruit with a strong caramel malt backbone. The hops really shine in the finish producing a lingering bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very creamy mouthfeel with a sticky finish.

O - This is an awesome DIPA. Very drinkable with lots of juicy flavors. Definetly recommended.
