This beer pours a light yellow orange, bordering on gold, with about two fingers of white head. Moderate carbonation, nothing strange for the style. This beer is pretty clear compared to other IPAs. The smell is a healthy combination of herbal resinous hops and a sweet floral citrus like hops... with orange, lemon and pine taking the lead in the nose...as far as I can smell.
Glug glug glug
The taste is good, not as big as most DIPAs but still very full and complex. Citrus hops with a bitter herbal edge over a balanced malt base, which does a lot to let the hops shine. Very well crafted and humble malts IMO. The mouth feel is average and a bit thin for something that calls itself a DIPA. Over this is good instead of 2Xipa its really more like 1.5Xipa. Good IPA for the price at least.
