Pours gold with a large white head.
Nose shows sweet malt, piny and resinous hops, peach and apricot.
Similar flavours with a big clean malt presence, massive piny and spicy hops along with softer fruit hops.

Appearance. Pours a pretty clear, amber gold with a finger of sticky pale yellow head that leaves some decent lacing.

Smell. Caramel, a little toasted grains and pink grapefruit.

Taste. Nice toasty caramel grains and decent piney, grapefruity hops. Nice bitter citrus rind finish. Lighter in taste than some dipas, but not a negative. Really nice.

Mouthfeel. Medium body, medium carbonation.

Overall. Really nice DIPA. Another random grab from a Seattle Whole Foods that turns out to be a winner.

Jeu de mots.....Pours like the rain falling in an old growth forest with subtle fragrant notes of dumpstered bagel and carhart with a hint of patchouli. At first taste one is reminded of scabies and dirt with an intricate lacing pattern left on the glass reminiscent of Edward Abbey's beard. An interesting beer, one that has been well received by the oi polloi.
