Pours a perfectly clear golden hue with a beautiful creamy off white head. Holds at two fingers and leaves hug spots of lacing all the way down the glass.
On the nose is wonderfully fresh citrus. Huge, fresh grapefruit. Mango and tangerine. Lemon zest. Just wonderful. Huge hop nose with some earthy tones beneath the citrus.
Taste mirrors the nose. Massive grapefruit tones and wonderfully bitter hops. Lemon zest and tangerine come through on the middle of the taste. Just fantastic. Crisp, clean finish with a big bitter punch on the back of the tongue. As I let the beer warm, some spicy notes begin to appear from the hops. Very complex and delicious IPA.
Mouthfeel is light with creamy carbonation. Really keeps the flavors moving and alive in your mouth. Delightful and refreshing.
What a beautifully brewed DIPA. Would absolutely drink again. Definitely worth seeking out.
