A - Pours a hazy deep orange with a one-finger foamy white head. Heavy lacing.

S - Mix of malts, grassy hops, and a touch alcohol.

T - Sweet malts are right upfront with floral hops finish out the flavors. Finish has a slight hop bitterness. Light alcohol presence in the finish.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Smooth creamy mouthfeel.

O - This is a decent malt forward DIPA. Definetly drinkable.

Pours a barely translucent copper-bronze with decent layer of sustained head. Unfortunately, I don't get much in the nose, but it does seem a little malty (dark sweet).

The barely perceptible to me nose does come through in the taste. A butterscotch malt sweetness that does have some fig-like flavors, maybe some quite subdued cherry flavor. The feel is decently carbonated, but I agree with other reviews that this is lacking any real hops bite. It's not that bad a beer, average I'd say, but it doesn't quite hit DIPA style I like.
