You gotta be kidding me 9.5 ACL? This IPA pours bright amber...then settles into a dark honey hue. Head never dies..lacing ...a Picasso sketch of clouds on a clear horizon. Aroma subdued...nostrils open pulling the head close to a snort...still the fragrance remains a mystery. Taste full of the brewers art....fruit maybe grapefruit...that kind of freshness...finishes in a WOW moment..can this be this good? Complex in a small way...keep it coming....can that bottle be almost empty? If you don't like this beer try tea....Cheers

Pours clear golden amber with two fingers of white head that departs rather quickly leaving clumps of lace.
Smell is citrus floral hops with plenty of malt aroma.
Taste is tropical fruit with some hop resins and a touch of sweet malts.
Mouthfeel is smooth well carbonated and lightly dry finish.
Overall a tasty DIPA with dangerously well hidden alcohol. Right now it is drinking like their DBA. Very smooth.
