Lots of hops with a nice malty backbone on this one. It is released twice yearly; once in the Summer and once in the late Fall / early Winter. Winter bottles have green & red ink, Summer is blue & red. There is a variation in the malt bill for each version.

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.
