Appearance - Pours clear copper color with off white head. Good lacing all around glass.

Aroma - Nice floral notes, hints of citrus mostly orange and grapefruit. Great malt pine aroma as well.

Taste - Taste follows aroma, citrus up front along with floral. Malts come in on the finish.

Feel - Medium body well carbonated, slightly dry finish.

Overall - A great DIPA, no sign of the alcohol easy drinking great flavors.

Picked up a bomber from Loews in Banner Elk, NC yesterday for $6.99. No bottling date visible.

Beer poured orange with a very nice white head that is leaving lacing.

Nose has hints of citrus.

Taste is citrus hops forward which slightly wins out over the large malt base.

Mouthfeel is full and smooth.

Overall this is a nice east coast double IPA that stands by the traditional approach of the grapefruit focus - recommended for fans of this style.
