On draft at the brewery.

Poured a crystal clear light copper hue with a two finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a diactyl, smoky caramel and citric hops.

The taste consisted of a strong upfront buttery dactyl, followed by waved of smoke and caramel and leading up to a lingering herbal and citric hop spice.

The mouthfeel was toward the lighter side of the style with vigorous carbonation.

Overall an interesting and complex DIPA. Sort of an American and English hybrid.
