Poured into an IPA glass from a day old growler. Appears a dark orange color with a fluffy off white head that has good staying power. The nose is absolutely awesome here. Loads of pine, citrus, tropical fruit and is beautifully complex. The taste follows suit with just the right amount of malt to support the load of hops. Again, the grapefruit, orange, resinous pine. Overall, it's a great DIPA that I wish I had more access to.

On tap

Pours clear golden color with a small creamy white head. Smells of tropical and citrus hop, berries, bready malt. Tastes of fruity tropical and citrus hops; mango, guava, red berries, pineapple. Slightly malty finish. Medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and finish. Nice and fruity throughout

On tap at Fat Head's in PDX. Piney grapefruity goodness. Incredibly well balanced with hops taking the front seat. I wish all DIPAs tasted like this. Beautiful.
