A: Pours a translucent light amber with very little head to speak of. There is a thin ring of small bubbles along the rim of the glass, and only a bit of lacing as it drinks.

S: The nose is pine cones, sweet sticky hop resin, and a touch tangerine rind. I am excite!!!

T: I get a good amount of sweet malt up front. It's pretty wild, considering hoppy the nose of this beer is. It tightens up in the middle with a touch of pine and a good serving of orange citrus. But that malt never seems to leave the palate. The finish is a great mix of bitter and sweet (mainly bitter) without much harsh overly hopped sting.

M: Medium bodied beer. This beer has some good heft to it. It's also super sticky, oily, and it coats the palate like, WHAT!!!!

O: This is a really good DIPA, but it can be pretty harsh on the palate. Mine is blasted right now. PALATE BLASTER! I'm confused with sticky sweets, oily bitters, and alpha acids that just won't go away. I will drink this again, but I'm reminded why I an not a fan of most DIPAs and TIPAs.
