Clear golden orange pour with a white head that fades down to a ring.

Huge citrus aroma. Grapefruit and orange are prominent. There is some honey and malt sweetness in there. Really nice aroma.

Taste is strong grapefruit and citrus rind. Slight herbal notes. There is subtle sweetness but the bitterness takes over, not in a bad way. Bitterness lasts.

Initially slick on the palate, but ends very dry. Slight alcohol warmth.

Really nice DIPA.

Poured into a FFF Alpha King glass. The beer its self is golden yellow and hazy with a thin white head about a finger thick. I can't say this beer is very pretty but it certainty is not ugly. The first smell is pine with citrus and grapefruit and hints of mango. This IPA is more on the piny side but there is a nice complexity to keep it from being one dimensional. The taste is earthy, sweet, piny, and fruity. One of the more complex tasting DIPAs I've had recently. I think a lot of DIPAs try to be hop bombs and pallet strippers rather then assertive and complex. The mouthfeel is a little thicker and sweeter then I prefer but it's still drinkable. Overall, this is one of the best DIPA buys out there. Its hard to turn it down when its fresh.
