Features a clover honey colored body and a thick, sticky, white head. Orange and lemon hop aroma with a touch of malt sweetness in the nose. Hop bitterness dominates the taste; some citrus flavors; very mild malt flavor. Medium-heavy body; big carbonation feel; very dry finish.

Hop bitterness rules this DIPA. The intensity is rather overpowering and gives the beer an almost one-dimensional quality. Malt and grain character is greatly lacking in presence. Overall, the beer lacks balance and refinement but still quite drinkable if you're a glutton for bitterness.

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.
