The color is cloudy but as bright orange and Amber as the sunset in Florida. The foam atop was dense and thick, almost sticky, that left tons of lacing.

The aroma is malty, with some tangerines, apricot, fig and a strong alcohol like quality.

The flavor starts strong on the malt, with a barley grain malt, then turns to an apricot, pine, tangerine and Honey. Problem is you are bombarded with boozy alcohol.

The feel is thick and smooth for a time but the alcohol heat takes over the chest and palate.

I feel like this may be a good DIPA but the overwhelming alcohols ruin this at every turn.
