A - Deep golden color, white head.

S - Spicy hop aroma, with just a hint of citrus.

T - Deep malty flavor, almost a Belgian type malt. Follow by the hop spice, and then just a little citrus note, or maybe floral.

M - Fully and cloying. Really sticks around in the mouth.

O - Nice drinkable IIPA. Very tasty, and it does not feel very boozy for 8.2%

Appearance is translucent yellow-gold with very little head and some lacing.

Nose is a fresh aroma of hops.

Taste is very fresh hops with light caramel & berries. There is a slight hop bite and a nutty finish.

Mouthfeel is very drinkable and smooth. There is only a mild tinge of hop bite, and the large amount of alcohol is virtually imperceptible.

Overall, it is one of the more drinkable double IPA's I have tried.

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a bright, light honey-yellow coloring with a light, filmy, bubbly white head. The nose is rich in cedar and pine, with some subtle grapefruit highlights. The flavor is resiny, with peppery hops on a tart, light, grapefruit sweet backbone. Surprisingly light, with a crisp body. The aftertaste is slightly filmy, with a resiny and tart blending to it. Slightly lingering finish, with a bitter, resiny end. Decent brew.
