Pours a cloudy golden yellow color, nice carbonation, huge two-finger foamy white head, nice retention, lots and lots of sticky lacing afterwards. The nose is malty, hoppy, some citrus/pines, and caramel. The taste is malty, more hops, citrusy, and some piney notes, and slight caramel. The finish is bitter and dry. Medium body. Very drinkable, a nice DIPA.

Gave this a try a buddy of mine recommended it knowing my taste of IPAs. Not a bad beer. There's just too many good ones out right now to put this in my top 10.

A- Pour left very little head, but there was great lacing as I got to see the bottom of my glass. Nice cloudy copper color.

S- Very fragrant hoppy smell. It is nice and sweet, very much like pink grapefruit.

T- A great spicy hoppy flavor, nice lemon peal taste. It is going very good with my spicy tacos.

M- The spicy feel is great with what I'm eating.

D- Easy to drink, nice well rounded DIPA.
