Amber hazy color with a thick head with short retention.
Aroma with notes of grapefruit, pine, caramels and passion fruit.
Citrusy flavor with notes of grapefruit, tea leaves, pine, resin, grass, caramel malt and candied sugar. Dry aftertaste with a long bitterness.
Bordering medium body with appropriate carbonation. Slightly acid. Alcohol of 9% abv positively contributes to its flavor.
Very nice citrusy DIPA, it does not feel heavy and it has a good balance of citrus-herbal and pine (ps. tons of it).

I had always heard people describe beers as onion and garlic flavors, never tasted those myself in a beer. This changed that in a major way. Look and feel are pleasant but the nose and taste are straight garlic and onions. First drain pour in a while.
