A - Pours a deep orange color - very clear however, only a few bubbles here and there. Head formation is off white, frothy but reduces quickly.
S - Citrus and fruity nose, owning to its hefty hop profile. IPA all the way.
T - Malty at first, but then is taken over by the strong american hops. Citrus, little amounts of pine and resin. Gets a little more balanced in the mid-stream as as bittering takes over. Finishes smooth and clean.
M - Moderate to strong body, lighter carbonation feel. Beer is sticky, thick. Little bit of retained sweetness and some oily texture.
O/D - An excellent DIPA, especially for the citrus american styles. A little bit filling, but you wouldn't want to be slamming these anyway. ABV is pretty potent, but these days it isn't way out of line.
