Pours a clear slightly orange gold color with a tight, white head that leaves chunks of lacing.
Smells of big pine and citrus hops.
Tastes of big hop notes on top of a solid malt base. Hops lead off with pine, grapefruit, lemon zest, and a bit of tropical fruits. Bitterness is quite prevalent. Malts come in and add some toasted bread with caramel sweetness. Sweetness definitely cuts the bitterness, but does not balance it out. But with that said, the hop bitterness, never seems overbearing, just intense and wonderful.
Mouthfeel is medium with a slightly assertive amount of carbonation.
Overall, a quite good DIPA that while not certainly my favorite, does garner revisiting.
