Reddish-orange with a quickly thinning tan head. Smells herbal and oily with faint fruits. Has a precise, floral bitterness on the palate that ends with a splash of orange, a hint of spice and consistent all the way through. Medium with enough heat to keep you warm. A potent yet refined, classic DIPA.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle poured into a snifter

Pours a clear golden color with hints of orange. A soapy, sticky white head rose to fill the 14oz glass and left some pretty big streaks of lace.

A beautiful hop bouquet. Pine resin, tropical fruits, grapefruit and a lightly sweet maltiness. This is really a joy on the olfactories.

What a nice hop explosion this guy gives off! Pine resin, oily hops, grapefruits and tropical fruit. The pale malts balance nicely against the sweet, sticky fruits.

As oily and resiny the taste and smell is, the body is pretty full and lush. Not syrupy at all. A good high level of carbonation with a moderately strong bitter kick.

The alcohol is pretty well hidden even though it clocks in over 9%. This isn't a bitter palate smashing ipa, but is really hoppy and easy to put back at the same time. Well done.
