This one pours a clear light amber with plenty of visible carbonation, and a half finger head that settles down within a few minutes to a bare skim.
The aroma comes with subtle herbal, floral and citrus notes, mixed with a slight brown sugary, caramel base accompanied with a hint of alcohol.
The taste follows the nose in every way. Nothing too sweet and nothing too bitter. This contains a subdued balance that I wasn't expecting from a DIPA.
The mouthfeel is thin to medium in carbonation.
Overall this is a decent brew that I hope to try out on tap some day.

I picked up a case of this to try and was so impressed that I got a sixtol of it for my kegerator when I was done with the case. After the sixtol was done, I grabbed another case so I would have some on hand while I moved on to some other brews.

Clean, crisp, strong.
