Served on draft at The Dancing Bear Pub

Color is a bright orange with a thick, white head. The aroma is grapefruit,piney hops and faint malts. The flavor is very hoppy. I get grapefruit, grassy, and piney hops. Just a touch of alcohol. Medium bitterness. I would drink this again and again. perfect carbonation.

A- A light orange brown color. Filtered but not clear. Off white head.
S- smells very rich and sweet. The hops are there, but mostly malts. Great smell, powerful, but not overpowering the sense.
T- A bit of a hop kick up front, but you can tell the malts are the real backbone of the beer. Tastes more like a fresh barely wine than most DIPAs. Sweet throughout.
M- very silky in texture. very smooth and still very drinkable for 10%.
O- I love thirsty planet's offerings and this was not a let down. A big beer for sure. I cannot wait for this to come out in bottles so i can age a few.
