Wow !! Impressive beer.
Not quite as over the top as I was expecting, but this one did not dissapoint. The beer was a golden color with a great head that was very thick and fluffy. The smell was very floral and full of citrus. The taste was extremly balanced and went down very smoothe. Flavors of sweet malt and spicey hops mixed perfectly to create a true joy to drink. One of the best DIPA's I've had.

Bottle dated 3/6/15. Golden orange with 1 finger head. Smells grassy, sweet bread, biscuits, piney. Hoppy. Bitter on the backend. Incredibly smooth. I could drink this all day. Not a juicy DIPA, however easily in my top 5. This is a must try. Unlike anything I've had before. So glad I got 2 bottles.
