Poured from a 22 oz bomber into an IPA glass.

Color is crystal clear gold with a thick, fluffy white head. Excellent retention and lacing. Smell is
juicy and citrus - like ruby red grapefruit juice. Floral, piney hops are also present. Flavor is an explosion of citrus on the palate, followed by sweet syrup with an alcohol bite, finishing with a lingering, pleasant bitterness. Body is medium-full with moderate carbonation and some hop resin oiliness.

Overall, a delicious, balanced DIPA. I personally like a little less sweetness, but this is an excellent example of the style that I think would be approachable for non hop-heads. Even at 100 IBU.
