Pours a shade darker than the typical DIPA amber with a smallish head of fine foam. The smell of the beer was earthy, a little citric, and milder than I was hoping. The taste was more hop-centric than the smell, as the citric flavors seemed to kick into overdrive at the start of the sip. The beer stayed citric mid palette, and allowed a touch of watermelon to slip in towards the end of the sip. The finish was surprisingly a little sweet, and the aftertaste was herbal. This was quite complex for the style. The body was medium dense and the feel sticky. A balanced DIPA.

really big beer, sweet but not too sweet. hint of spice. caramel malt. a little bit of candied tropical fruits. overall a nice sipping beer, should probably be in a sweet mood for this one, although it is quite well balanced
