On tap at Bierria Paradiso in D.C. Bright orange color with a touch of copper. Foamy cream white head. Tons of sheets of lacing. Smell is very citrusy with some floral freshness. Lots of sweeter fruity malt flavors as well. Taste is similar. Orange dominated but there's more of a resin piney flavor that what I smelled. Underlying tropical sweetness the whole way through but it's quite bitter. Hops hit their high point about midway through but the finish is a bit weak. Sweetness comes through a bit more at the end. Body is a touch lighter than I might have hoped. This beer really has a nice balance of malts and hops and alcohol for a DIPA. Very drinkable. The mouthfeel and finish could have been a touch better. But overall, very enjoyable.
Serving type: on-tap
