Served in a flared pokal at Bliss.

Is that a Hop Rocket in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? Regardless, this stuff pours a clear auburn topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises sweet caramel, mild ruby red grapefruit zest, greens, and a bit of sweet flowers. The taste brings in more of the same, with a balance mostly being maintained throughout, though the caramel, joined by a bit of buttery biscuit, wins out in the end. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a decent DIPA, but not one that really excites me in any way.

A: Glass consuming display of micro-effervesce fills a tarnished orange body that had a slight misty haze to it. A cream colored 1 inch head shows resilience while providing a sheet coat lacing.

S: Sweetened grapefruit, flowery citrus, but the strength leans on the lighter side. Flat complexity no spark of interest.

T: Flavor had a good level of hop induction, dry toastiness, and dry citrus. The ibu's come on strong particularly on the finish. Some bright wet lemony notes interject at the start while a dry hopping of lemon finishes out with a hint of dried lime.

M: toasty warm with a specialty malt base and a noticeable mention of alcohol. The alcohol is fairly well hidden except on longer more savoring holds.

O: Big dry hop blast ends with a sturdy amount of specialty grain depth. pretty decent with exception of weak nose.

A - Pours a hazy copper with a thin white head. Nice amount of sticky lacing.

S - Nose has a nice mix of piney hops and sweet citrus.

T - Starts off sweet with a nice mix of citrus and heavy caramel malts. Hops really come through in the finish. The alcohol is noticeable throughout.

M - Medium bodied with low carbonation. Sticky syrupy mouthfeel.

O - A decent DIPA. Definetly worth trying.
