Pours clear, bright yellow in color, with 1/4 inch head. Taste is dank hops, hemp, and grapefruit. Medium bodied and bitter. Makes for a solid sipper. I have other DIPAs I prefer, but this one is good and worth a try.

L-Very hazy Orange Copper color, with linger white head.
S-Descent hop aroma but not a total punch in the face
T- Very Balanced no alcohol heat. Have given this DIPA to non DIPA drinkers and they thought it was amazing.
F-Very heavy and viscous due to all the hop oil and being 10%
O- I personal find this beer to be amazing and worth the trip to get it once a year.

This is one well balanced and easy drinking dipa. Definitely hard to believe this bad boy is 10 percent, abv is definitely well hidden, though I definitely felt it after a few. Nice hop profile, not overly sweet. I can see why this one is so well regarded.

Poured on draft.

A: Pours a copper orange with a full off-white head that maintains nicely and laces throughout.

S: Solid and well-balanced notes of piney and citrus hops.

T: Big pine and citrus hops up front with a nicely pronounced bitterness. Finishes clean. Citrus settles on the back end, with lasting bitterness taking a while to settle in.

M: The bitterness creates a little astringency for me, has a nice tight carbonation.

O: For a DIPA and considering I don't care for big hop bombs, this one has a great hop profile and isn't overwhelmingly bitter. A great beer, nicely well-balanced.

Pours a golden cooper . Ordered on tap by the time it was brought to me had only a slight trace of a head. Smells of grapefruit but taste less bitter than the smell . I didn't like this beer at first but the taste grew on by the time the glass was empty.
