Poured from a bomber into a room temp pint glass.
A- golden-orance color with a fluffy one-finger+ head. Good carbonation and lots of lacing. It's a bit less hazy than most of its kind.
S- pine and citrus, very mild aroma for this style.
T-some sweet maltiness followed by citrus hop bitterness. Nice balance.
M-good body and carbonation, yet light and drinkable. Easy on the palate.
O-very solid American IPA, quite drinkable as well at 7%.
Serving type: bottle

3.88/5 rDev -7.6%

Appearance is a clear yellowish copper color. This offering is slightly effervescent with a finger of fluffy head that seemed to linger forever and left rings of lace behind reminiscent of a nitro-tapped beer. The malt profile seems solid, if not remarkable and the hoppiness is good for a single IPA.
This offering does suffer from an odd trace of booziness which makes it less drinkable than some higher ABV DIPAs that I’ve sampled in the past.
Serving type: on-tap
