A: Hazy, dark copper colored-beer with a white head. I get a good amount of lace; the head dissipates pretty quickly.

S: Smells are a fabulous melding of fragrant floral and citrus hops plus rich, caramel maltiness. I could happily smell this all day long...

T: The taste has a sharp bitterness of the citrus/fruity hops, as in grapefruits, but also has the malty caramel flavors noted in the aroma.

M: Full-bodied, the beer finishes with the same themes of resinous (ha!) hops and malt undertones.

O: Bold DIPA with a great balance -- loved it!

This beer reminded me of Lucky Charms... magically delicious...

Huge pine notes and stickiness dominate this baby... not a one trick pony though.... the malts do an ample job of carrying this as well...

Beer is fresh as well and I can tell... no hint of booze at all...

Dangerously drinkable...

This will be a go to hereafter...
