Pours transparent orange with a thick white head and nice lacing. Aroma is citric and floral hops. Grapefruit is present up front. The palate is also a hop party, where the big flavors come out in the finish as hops are accustomed to doing. A nice smelling and tasting bouquet. Creamy, oily and resiny texture. A little sticky as well. It is truly hard to believe this beer is 11% abv. A fantastic IIPA, though short of elite. Amazingly balanced for the abv level, but a little short of the powerful hops aroma and taste I'm looking for in this densely populated style. Still, a great tasting beer.
