Appearence is hazy gold with a big white head leaving chunky, foamy lace.
Smell is strong, sweet hops, citrus, almonds?
Taste is also big and hoppy with an unusual candied vibe up front, some malt sugars mid-palate before a resious, bitter finish.
Mouthfeel is sticky and dry.
Drinkability is good, a dank, unusual, complex IPA.

Clear orange colored ale with a puffy off-white colored head.
Smell is strongly of citrus. Abundant grapefruit with strong tea and malt sugar. Smells woody and slightly smoky.
Starts out sweet with a woody citrus flavor. Abundant citrus flavor like the smell. Little bit of butter and burnt sugar with a slight onion flavor. Tasty yet very smooth with not the slightest hint of how strong it is.
Mouthfeel is good.
Overall a tasty and easy to drink double IPA. Not the best but it is nice for the price.
