Nugget and Apollo hops added in the brew kettle provide a green, floral aroma and citrus hop base, while the later addition of Amarillo, Citra, and Centennial hops add notes of spicy grapefruit and orange - complimenting the resilient malt profile.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pilsner hourglass. No bottling date that I could find.

A- Deep amber, good clarity, small slightly off-white head.

S- Light notes of floral, citrus, apricot, and spice. Getting a bit of yeast.

T- Apricot, floral, some orange, spice, finish is bitter floral.

M- On the heavier side of medium, a bit syrupy.

O- Not the most potent DIPA, the aroma is a bit muted, and the flavor profile isn't my favorite. There seems to be a yeast flavor to it that I didn't care for.
