On tap at The Reservoir, Waterbury, VT. The appearance was a moderately hazy burnt orange color with a bar pour’s kind of slim looking film of a white head. Barely any lacing. The smell had a sweet pulpy grapefruit bursting over some bitter pine and subtle lemon rind. The taste takes the previously mentioned flavors and adds a nice drying effect on into the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sipping quality about it. Carbonation seemed good with enough harsh bitterness on my tongue to definitely show some great DIPA effects. Overall, this was a very nice DIPA that I would have again.
