Sampled at the great Naja's Place in Redondo Beach.
A - The beer pours a deep golden color, with a slightly hazy, finger deep head with great retention and lacing.
S - The beer smells strongly of citrus with orange, passionfruit, and other tropical notes. I get a tinge of alcohol.
T - The beer is surprisingly not overhopped. I'm also getting fruits, a slight malty note; the body is heavily citric with lemon and orange dominating! This tastes absolutely wonderful.
M - The beer is medium bodied, low in carbonation, and finishes dry.
D - This beer is extremely drinkable for a DIPA, largely because it's not particularly alcoholic. I think you can enjoy this with almost any type of food.
Serving type: on-tap
