Pours a hazy golden-orange with a half finger of frothy off-white head atop. The aroma is full of pine and tropical fruit hops including some pineapple and grapefruit. There is some caramel sweetness as well with just a touch of floral elements and a bit of alcohol coming through. The flavor starts off with a big hit of tropical fruit hops with lots of grapefruit flavor and some strong bitterness. There is just a bit of sweet caramel malt flavor coming through for some balance. Through the middle, more of the grassy and pine flavored hops hit the tongue with even more bitterness with a bit of floral flavor. The finish is a mix of mango, pineapple, sweet caramel, bitterness, and a touch of alcohol. Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation throughout. Feels smooth with a dry and very bitter finish that really lingers. This is a big hoppy DIPA. The hop profile is really nice and has a good blend of different hop flavors and the malt is strong enough to keep up well.
