Clear amber color with a good head with good retention.
Fruity aroma with notes of apples and lots of caramels and pineapples. Somewhat different on a nice way.
Quite resiny flavor with notes of spices, lots of pines, piƱacolada, bread and butter, grapefruit sweet concentrate and orange marmalade. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium to full body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 11.3% is in harmony with the beer.
A fruity and resiny DIPA. It is also a good sipper; you definitely can drink this at room temperature. Very rounded and interesting.
