22 oz 2013 bottle served in a lager glass.
The clear body looks like honey, and there are suggestions of honey in both the aroma and the flavor. The aroma, however, is dominantly and strongly floral. The flavor has some citrus and herbal notes from the hops in addition to the floral ones. A relatively low bitterness (moderate) makes this very drinkable (aged) DIPA.
The high ABV is partially hidden.
