Very brite and the citrus notes are very nice on the back end. I've had this several times and without a doubt one of my all time favorites .

My favorite Double IPA to date. I've had all the Top ones other than King Sue and Society & Solitude #5.

Look: Straw yellow with hints of amber; totally cloudy, completely opaque. Pours with a thick, 2 finger, white cloud-like head that dies down very slowly leaving a thick, uneven layer of foam on the surface of the beer and large amounts of sticky lacing on the sides of the glass. Perfect!

Smell: Fresh cut grass, loads of citrus (think grapefruit), slight aroma of pine, acidic finish. Smells delicious and inviting.

Taste: Slight grassy-start, followed by a bold, citrus middle (grapefruit), with a mildly tart lemony citrus finish. No dry-bitter taste at all. Awesome!

Feel: Heavier-side of medium body. Rich, velvety feel to start; then a mild fizzy sensation from the carbonation, ending with slight pucker at the end. Refreshing - almost zero dryness at the finish.

Overall: I believe this is the best DIPA that I have ever had. Love it! I could drink this one over and over!
