A: Hazy tea tinted gold under a 2” foam collar composed of uniform, fine bubbles that cling to the side of the glass leaving sheets of lace.
S: Citrus and grapefruit, some earthiness.
T: Fruity palate with citrus, apricot, grapefruit, light caramel, biscuit, gives way to a big grapefruit rind bitterness.
F: Creamy smooth, medium to a touch above on the body, medium carbonation, slight astringency from the hops on the finish.
O: A big, bold double IPA with everything dialed up to 11.

I've only ever had this beer on nitro (it's the "go to" nitro tap at Bru Grill & Market in Lake Forest) and it's been exceptional in that format. Very creamy mouthfeel with a well balanced bitterness. When served on nitro, this is definitely an above average beer.

A - bright orangish yellow with a soft, white head

S - bread, pineapple, grapefruit, some alcohol

T - grapefruit, pineapple, bread, cake batter, sweet, mildly bitter; perfect balance

M - medium bodied, warming alcohol, smooth, well carbonated

This was really an awesome beer. The hops are intense, the malt is solid, and the balance is superb. I really enjoyed this one. I recommend it!
