12oz bottle into tulip.

A - Beer looks like beer. Crystal clear, no cloudiness...maybe a light tint of orange.

S - Lots of citrus and hops, not much malt.

T - Spot on. Definitely a hop bomb but has a decent malt presence to balance it. Amazing.

M - Creamy, full bodied, but yet drinkable. Goes down easy with a decent amount of carbonation.

O - This is definitely in my top 5...had this like a month ago and have been seeking it out since...found it earlier this week...enjoying it now. If you love DIPA's, you'll love this.

Amber color with a relatively thin head.
Aroma of passion fruit, rotten peaches and mango. Notes of sweet pineapples.
Sweet flavor of concentrated malt, this is counterbalanced by a good bitterness. Hints of apple juice, grapefruit, pine, honey and resins. Super bitter and dry aftertaste.
Full liquorish body with low carbonation.
Its 9.4% ABV is harmonic and just have a numbing effect.
Quite sweet, malty, alcoholic, flavorful and bitter beer, all tuned up.
