12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter
Pours a hazy light golden amber with a bright white two finger head with abundant lacing. The aroma is slightly citrus and floral accented with grassy hops. Mild grapefruit and citrus upfront, transitioning to grassy notes and a bit of very slightly sweet malt, and finally finishing with a very dry piney hop bitterness. A good deal of carbonation, lighter bodied when compared to many other DIPA's. Very enjoyable drier DIPA. A DIPA that is perfect for those that prefer dry to fruity.

Served from tap in a tulip.
The beer is a dark amber color, slightly cloudy and was served to me with about a one-finger foamy head.
The aroma is grapefruit and citrus with a hint of underlying bready malt.
The taste is big-time grapefruit with maybe a hit of pine resin and a bit of booziness. There is a lingering grapefruit pith bitterness that stays on the tongue for some time. It's quite a potent mouthful.
The beer is medium in mouthfeel and a bit sticky.
This is an excellent brew that I would happily drink again. A big IPA that delivers big flavor.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of citrus hops, floral hops, sweet malt, hint of pine, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a strong bitterness level. Tastes of citrus hops, floral hops, sweet malt, strong pine, and alcohol. Overall, strong and fresh flavors, good appearance, aroma, and body.
