On tap in a pint glass at The Mill

A- nice pour! Beer had a nice half inch head that was foamy with inconsistent sized bubbles making up the off-white head

S- Smells really bitter, but sweet...can't think of the word that describes this sensation (hehe). Fragrant, floral hops balance out the citrusy smell. A small hint of pine, not much.

T- Similar to the smell with a small amount of hop bitterness, surprisingly balanced for a DIPA. Sweet, a little boozy. Citrusy and good!

M- Great mouthfeel! Actually refreshing for such a big beer with a somewhat medium body.

O- A Great representation of the style. Great fragrant aroma, well balanced, refreshing. I would order this again!

12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a small layer. It is a hazy orange color with some clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: citrus, caramel, boozy alcohol, and bready aromas.

Taste: Tangerine, citrus, caramel, toffee, and chewy notes.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, chewy, low to medium carbonation, medium bodied, a little dry, and easily drinkable.

Overall: Pretty solid DIPA. I will enjoy more of these in the future.
