I'm not one for dissection, leave that to others - this is a great IIPA! Bitterness, smoothness, great mouthfeel - a good beer to sup on in the European tradition. Others will say it has piney overtones, etc, - yep - it does. Goes with the style and the hops used. Big ups to the b
rewer - you did well!

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had an orange color and a thick, cloudy texture. Some floaties. There was a big, foamy, long-lasting head. Pretty good, though not great, lacing.
S: A big aroma of citrus, hops, and some malt.
T: Tasted of hops (lots of them), citrus (grapefruit, possibly a bit of orange), malt, and a touch of caramel. A very focused, sharp, and well made flavor.
M: A highly carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.
D: This has to be first DIPA from a European brewery that's actually gotten the style completely right. Eminently drinkable.

A - A hazy and pale orangish yellow body with a head of frothy eggshell with very nice stamina.
S - Citrus and orange aroma in the form of hops.
T - Great citrusy hops flavor with a fantastic bitter bite.
M - This beer offers very little stickiness on my lips but leaves a huge stick in the back of my mouth. It keeps me wanting to drink it. It has a subtle coarse feel throughout each pull.
~ Complex and well thought out. This is an excellent drinker. Not for the faint-hearted pale ale drinker, this is a beer that should be enjoyed by folks who know how to drink a great DIPA.
