Appearance: amber in color with a 1" head that slowly falls to a spotty surface covering.

Smell: caramel, lemon citrus, and a hop presence is easy to detect.

Taste: caramel, lemon zest, a bit of grapefruit, some pine tones, and a mellow grassiness creates a nice flavor profile. Bitterness is moderate and not overpowering. Alcohol is definitely warming here.

Mouthfeel: medium-heavy in body. Light crispness to start, smoother and somewhat dry at the finish. Long lasting afterataste.

Overall: I enjoyed this one quite a bit. A good DIPA that is slower sipping but nicely refreshing for the style.

Pours amber with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows dried fruits, honey, figs, apricots and sweet clean malt.
Sweet flavours, with a fair bit of clean malt alongside fruity hops, honey and a custard/dill-like sorachi note. Lovely.
Nice moderately high carbonation and slight syrupy body works perfectly.
Delicious stuff.
