It pours a golden color leaving the same color body and mostly clear. There is a fair amount of carbonation which is seen rising. There is a one inch foamy white head. The lacing spider webs my chalice. The smell is hoppy and malty at the same time, piney and earthy, really nicely done. The taste is bittersweet between the malts and the hops, a spectacular taste on the tongue. It is about a medium on the palate with some slight sharpness a bit here and there on the tongue. Overall, this is an excellent DIPA that I would come back to.

Had a snifter at World of Beer Hilton Head Island, SC for $6.00.

Beer was served a cloudy golden orange with a decent white head.

Nose was wonderful, dank and citrus overwhelmed the senses.

Taste was grapefruit and pine forward over a good size malt base, very dank!

Mouthfeel was really well done, so light and delicate a body for the size of the beer!

Overall I was very impressed with this beer, definitely worth having if you see it on tap!
