A - amber with an orangish hue; soft, thin, white head that quickly fades
S - huge citrusy aromas, grapefruit, some sweet sugary notes, a hint of alcohol, faint caramel
T - bread, caramel, faint toast, huge grapefruit notes, piny, big bitter finish, warming alcohol in the finish
M - full bodied, warming alcohol, well carbonated
This is a pretty good DIPA. The alcohol is prevalent but it's not overpowering. It is a bit heavy at times. The malts tend to out shine the hops at first, but the bold hop character takes over as the beer warms. It has a nice, intensely bitter finish. For such a big beer it has good drinkability which is helped by it's balance. In the end, this is good beer that I would definitely have again.
