Bomber thanks to CincyTrigger. Orange body with sticky white ring lacing. First thing that comes out is malts so that was a bit of a letdown. There is definitely some hop profile though, not sure how fresh it is.

Taste is much better. Lots of floral hops up front, followed by some citrus, and some hefty caramel malt. This is a pretty unique DIPA, and one that puts emphasis on the floral hops and malt finish.

Medium bodied and no boozy taste. Quality.

This poured an absolutely thin complexion with all too much clarity. The color was light orange and the head was fizzy with little retention.

Lots going on in the nose with some strong malt character but then a sweet citrusy lemon and grapefruit scent. The end is a little piney with a touch of floral hop notes.

The flavors hold a lot of bitterness between the sweet lemon rind and piney hops. A sprig of citrus is abolished by a earthy, leafy cannabis flavor. All melded together it's rather tasty.

The feel is bitter, not too astringent though. The carbonation is reasonably smooth and it's not heavy on the alcohol feel.
