A - Cloudy copper color with a dense off-white head. Great retention and lacing.
S - Citrus aroma with some light floral notes. Seems to be a bit more orange scented rather than grapefruit. A malty sweetness is present as well.
T - Bitter citrus hits you up front, but then the flavors seems to muddle together with the caramel sweetness. Finish is a bit boozy. I was really expecting this beer to knock my socks off, but it was not very impressive IMHO.
M - Medium to heavy body with moderate carbonation. Definitely coats the mouth and tongue.
D - A decent DIPA, but nothing all that special. The flavor, mouthfeel, and noticable alcohol make this a one per session beer for me.
