Deep orange with a touch of rust color and a white head that lasts for a while and deposits some nice chunky lace. Aromas of citrus, herbal hop, slight pine and a burnt sugar note in the background. As expected the hops are what this beer is all about. Flavors of bitter citrus, caramel, grapefruit, and light pine in the finish. Mouthfeel has enough carbonation up front, smooths out and finishes semi dry. Alcohol is well hidden and that brings about a pretty dangerous level of drinkability for a brew this big. This delivers as a DIPA worthy of a throw in to a regular mix. It's not the best out there but it has a nice blend of classic flavors that make this one an instant winner.

Kind of bland. Not bad just boring. Will finish the 2 cans I bought but won't buy again.

Another overrated beer by 6 point. There's just not much there as far as smell and taste goes.
