a - poured a one finger thick off-white head into a snifter that left good lacing throughout. the body was a dark amber color.
s - big citrus aromas like grapefruit and orange. hint of pine and floral hops too.
t - same as the aroma with a little more pine flavors.
m - medium mouthfeel, great carbonation.
o - hops really done well here, very drinkable too.

If you enjoy DIPA's then I will go out on a limb and say you will like this one. Too hoppy for my taste but sure hop heads will like it.
