Poured it from a can into a pint glass. A beautiful looking beer with a great balance between the hops and malt. Slightly piney in the scent and the taste, but not overdone. A rather quaffable double, despite the high ABV. The alcohol is well hidden. Don't let it sneak up on you.

Beer is a dull straw/peach color. Had a large peachy/tan head with very good retention and heavy lacing. Smells of hop resin and pine, with a bit of citrus juicyness and bread.

Taste starts with pine, then hop resin, followed by more pine and bread with a grapefruit and lemon finish. Has a resinous, bready, lemony aftertaste. Has an average body and high carbonation for a DIPA. A bit too much carbonation in my opinion.
