On tap at Falling Rock Tap House (Denver)
12 oz pint glass
The beer appeared a very nice hazy orange with a thin white head that was well retained and settled into a small thin cap that lasted throughout the beer. The beer also had a very nice lacing effect. Noticeable carbonation streaming to the top of glass.
The aroma is big and hoppy, citrus and pine.
The taste is really good, follows the nose really well...a big hoppy flavor, citrus and pine, but not so overpowering like some DIPAs with also just a hint of sweetness.
The beer has a medium body to it, again which is a definite plus as most DIPAs are heavy and feel like syrup. The beer is smooth and rich with excellent carbonation.
For a beer with the ABV it has the beer is extremely drinkable.
Overall a world class beer. I now understand the hype and it lives up to the billing.
Serving type: on-tap
