Pours a clear reddish-brown with about a finger of white head that leaves a little lacing. Smells of stone fruit and citrus, a touch of malt. Taste is honey, malt, hop bitterness, and a little alcohol burn. Crisp, body feels on the lighter side, flavor lingers long after the finish. Meh, not really for me.

Hazy orange brew.

Do not pick up much in the nose. Hint of citrus, some honey sweetness.

Dense with caramel malts and tastes of melon, banana, finishing with red pepper spice and a bit of alcohol burn. Quite fizzy in the feel and overall quite acidic.

DIPA that packs a punch and some welcomed spice. Yum

Very crisp and refreshing for a 9.1. Light color is deceptive.
