A bit old. Bottled about 6 months ago

A- pours hazy orange thin head with good legs
S- Sweet malt with big hops
T- Good balance of hop and sweet
M - rich and thick. A bit more than I was expecting.

Fresh hops have faded but still a super solid double IPA.

Amber yellow color with a thick head with good retention.
Aroma of pineapple, oranges, booze and pine.
Citrusy flavor with notes of pepper, caramels, grapefruit, pine, mango and tangerines. Finishing with a mint note.
Dry and bitter aftertaste. Alcohol of 8.5% has a warming effect.
Full body with appropriate carbonation.
Sticky and very hoppy DIPA and quite alcoholic. Maybe for a colder day during summertime.
