Pours hazy orange amber with a medium off white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, sugary alcohol notes, yeast, mild citrus. Taste same as aroma with some mild bitterness. Palate is a med to full body, mild carbonation. Finish is sweet caramel malt, yeast, citrus orange notes, mild herbal earthy hops bitterness, slightly dry ending with sweet alcohol. Overall seems a bit subdued on the hops but still a good drinking and easy on the palate brew.

Serving: 12 oz bottle poured into an IPA glass.

Appearance: Pale, hazy gold. Tall, dense and lasting white head with good lacing.

Smell: Malty, sweet caramel with earthy layers, citrus and pine.

Taste: Full and malty, sweet caramel and molasses; balanced by plenty of resinous hop character, but without overt bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Full body, slightly oily feel, and good, moderate carbonation.

Overall: A full bodied DIPA with nice balance between earthier Old World hops and malt and brighter West Coast hops.
