A: Pours a clear golden apricot/honey in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass and some orange highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy beige head that slowly reduces to a finger tall medium sized cap in the center of the glass surrounded by a very thick film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of tropical/pineapple hops, citrus/orange hops, slightly stronger sweetness from caramel/grain, and just a hint of alcohol.

T: Upfront there is a moderate to strong flavor of grainy and caramel malts with a slightly stronger than moderate amount of sugary and caramel sweetness. That is followed by some moderate flavors of citrus/orange rind and tropical/pineapple hops with a hint of pine hops. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness in the finish which fades pretty quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp upfront with some stickiness and alcohol warming in the finish.

O: This is a decent though not great DIPA - worth sampling but I would not personally grab a 4/6 pack of this one. A little too hot from the alcohol to be an easy drinker. Fairly sweet, even for a DIPA.

You know your favorite double IPA? The one where the nose reminds you of walking through a field of ripening hops? This ain't it.
