Poured an auburn gold body with good head and lace. A juicy, crispy, citric hop profile in the aroma and the taste is the same. Classic DIPA as it is light bodied, easy to drink, hops aplenty and not only citric notes but some grapefruit. Very little sweetness but it's there for balance and the beer finishes crisp and refreshing. Just a simple but sessionable strong IPA that is a must try.

Poured into sam adams custom glass, color is straw/gold, head is bright white, dense, presenting at least 1/2 inch thick, some lacing as its enjoyed.

Smell is huge citrus hop blast with subtler earthy, piney notes. Citrus is lemon rind, grapefruit and maybe some sweeter orange; the piney notes are noticed as it lingers along with some feinter breadiness.

Taste is less big hop with some more subtle malt flavors: hops are again big on citrus, grapefruit prominent, with some lemon; malt is lightly bready, maybe some biscuit. this is a great tasting dipa, wonderful balance and no heavy sweetness or cloying flavors.

Mouthfeel is well balanced: good flavor on the tongue and presentation in the form of the bitterness and solid carbonation with enough sweetness to compensate this amount of hops; lingering flavors/feel are prominent on the tongue and cheeks and then it just sucks your mouth dry.

Overall, this is a great dipa, love the huge hop aroma and great balance in the taste and mouthfeel - hard to create a brew this big without it coming off cloying in bitterness or sweetness, but this is very well done.
