6/7/14: on tap at Monk's Café in Philadelphia

A: yellow, copper color.

S: tons of citrus, pine, and herbs.

T: a bit more earthy and herbal than I'd like. this is what I imagine raw hops to taste like. couldn't really detect much sweetness or malts in the background. the bitterness becomes apparent in the finish.

M: super smooth and creamy.

O: great DIPA, but inevitably falls short of the hype.
