Poured a hazy dark copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured a moderate caramel coupled with a balmy hop spice.

The taste combined a heavy rounded malt with a secondary, yet lingering raw hop spice.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style with a residual spice.

Overall a tasty well rounded DIPA.

Bottle: Poured a deep beige color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of clean citrus and pine hoppy notes. Taste is also a good mix between some pine and citrus notes with a solid non-descript malt backbone. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. This beer was brewed very close to style with a good aroma and solid malt backbone. Not standing out from other DIPA but well enjoyable nonetheless.
