The beer is clouded orange with an off-yellow high and long-lasting head, leaving tons of lacing and good curtains.

The textbook DIPA smells, toffee, grape-fruit, pine. All fresh, all good!

when it comes to taste it has all i look for in a DIPA, balanced maltiness, sweet caressing toffee and caramel, fresh and bitter citric notes. Wonderful!

Medium carbonation, small lively foamy bubbles, smooth texture with a big body, a long rewarding bitterness.

Can't help it, I'm a sucker for a well-balanced DIPA. This is one!

A: Pours murky deep amber with tall tan creamy head that slowly sets into nice lacings.

S: Caramell malt, somewhat sweet and loads of American hops, both bitter and floral; piney and citric - pineapple, grapefruit and bitter orange sezt.

T: Sweet caramell malt together with lots of floral hops; citric and piney. Some oranges and ripe red apples.

M: Carbonation is medium and body rather full, considering the style. Aftertaste is long and lovely bitter.

O: A very nice DIPA, complex and well balanced.
