This is a really fantastic and neat find in any ordinary store! It's fairly carbonated and has a very thick head to it with its rich, hazy amber color. There's a blast of awesome bitter hoppy, floral, and citrus flavors that quenches the mouth every time I take a sip, most notably pineapple juice to balance out the spicy hops. Grapefruit peel is prominent in the aftertaste. It smells really great and has a combination of different scents, pine being a strong indicator.

Overall I like to have one on occasion as a delicate treat.

A Double IPA that is very strong and bold. I brought a twelve-pack to a party and it was gone in no time. Easy to drink, and so many great memories.
