Hop heavy. Not very balanced but still delicious.

L: Pours brilliant garnet tined amber under a thin persistent white foam collar, very fine bubbles.
S: Citrusy resiny hops over malt.
T: Big resiny citrus rind bitterness drives this beer with a distant malt background. The hops are aggressive and well done. The malt is moderately low and is not very complex.
F: Creamy smooth moderately full bodied and moderate carbonation.
O: A big hop driven DIPA.

Aroma is pine, fruit and an undercurrent of malts. The flavor is citrus, grapefruit, an undercurrent of malts and a dryish and a smooth (for an IIPA) finish.
