Poured from bottle into pint glass.

A: Cloudy yellow appearance, moderately lacy head that lingers.

A: Hoppy sweet, fruity, hints of banana & pine.

T: Punch of happiness with light lemon flavor, hoppy bitterness with some roasted malt coming through. Finish lingers a bit & stays dry.

M: Medium mouthfeel.

O: Overall tasty DIPA but nothing that separates from the pack.
