Bottle into a glass.

A: Bright gold, very transparent, head subsided quickly, sticky lacing remaining.

S: Light, refreshing, floral and lemony hop notes. A very slight malt note also comes through.

T: I'm not sure I can taste all 4 hop varieties. In fact, I might classify this as a IPA if I didn't know better. That being said, this beer is very good and very well balanced. There's just enough malt character to hold up the big florally bitter hop taste. Starts off more sweet, but as you sip and get the aftertaste, a clean bitterness overpowers the sweetness. I could drink this all day long.

M: Perfectly carbonated. Refreshing and sparky, slightly sticky, ever so slightly oily. I don't taste any of the 8.2% ABV either.

O: Great beer, if not really what I would describe a DIPA. I can't tell which hops they used, but they mingle together very well. Also, I believe they used just enough malt to really balance this beer out. Try this one.
