A: DFH snifter. pours a wonderful vibrant orange color. nice white head with a low retention rate and a fair amount of lacing.
S: wonderful citrus aroma, with a little pine in the back of the nose. some slight apple aromas from the malts.
T: really well-balanced DIPA. I can't pull what hops are in this, but I get tons of citrus hop flavors with a sweet earthy flavor in the back of the palate that lingers for a while. Wonderful sweet malts to blend in the hop flavors perfectly.
M: ridiculously smooth DIPA, very clean and crisp, with a mild carbonation rate.
D: smooth, and appears to be mellow flavor-wise. this is really close to perfection for the style. well worthy of a try if you can get some.
Serving type: bottle
