Pours a pretty orange-gold with good clarity and plenty of carbonation bubbles meandering to the surface. Nice, sticky eggshell-colored head. A few fingers to start. Slowly reduces, leaving a web of lacing on the side of my Ommegang 10-year anniversary goblet.
Big aromas of piney, floral and citrusy hops -- outstanding complexity of the nose in the hops alone. A strong backbone of malty caramel smells balances it out.
The taste is again dominated by a complex blend of grapefruity hops. Some sweet maltiness toward the middle giving way to a lingering bitter finish. Each sip calls for another one. Hoppy as hell without being harsh. Smooth is the operative word here.
Mouthfeel is oily -- again from the big hop presence -- but feather-light as well. A little more heft wouldn't hurt, but nothing to complain about.
Extremely drinkable at 7.5% for something that I would categorize more as a DIPA. If I'd gladly throw back a bunch of Racer 5s in a night, a few of these would more than hit the spot too.
