Poured into a New Belgium snifter
A - Beautiful! Golden sunset with tiny yeast flakes floating. Some head and decent lacing
S - Hay, citrus zest, candy sugar, a flower I can't pin point and a bit of pine
T - Awesome. Not to big or to small. Lots of hops, nice amount of malt. It explodes with citrus, sugar and pine and never quits
M - A bit to fluffy and carbonated for my taste but still good
D - Middle of the road. Easy and not so easy. Depends on palate and mood
Final thought - I used to think this beer was just okay. Now, I am starting to think it is pretty neat

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
