A cloudy orange body with small head and lace on top of a strong citric and spicy aroma but not much else going on in the aroma. The beer is light to medium bodied which is hard for a DIPA, smooth, some noticeable citric hop flavors with a touch of peppery, crispy spice. Hops are not overpowering and provide a dry, snapping b ackbite but for a DIPA one would expect more a hop profile than citric notes. I did get a touch of sweet fruit tastes as well but any sweet and/or caramel malts thrown in to balance are simply overpowered. Reminded me more of a Belgian ale, possibly a Belgian IPA, than what hopheads would consider a DIPA (although has the ABV that DIPAs do, making this a sipper).
