Poured on draft in St Louis while watching the USA World Cup match.

A: Hazy golden amber with soapy one finger off white head that left some sticky lacing.

S: Pine resin, grapefruit, and some faint pineapple.

T: Light citrus, honey, orange peel, and some bready malts.

M: Full bodied but not heavy leaving some hop oils on the tongue.

O: Good basic DIPA. I would grab a pint whenever I'm in the area.

Pours a chill hazed amber with a pinky of eggshell colored head. Never really clears, great lacing & good head retention

S: Faint pineapple, some breadyness, then grapefruit & passion fruit

T: Breadyness, faint grapefruit, pears & lemon zest up front. Grapefruit pith, pineyness, dryness, a little bit of peach & pears as this warms. Finishes with a big grapefruit pop & some pineapple & dryness & a little bit of pear

MF: Medium bodied, delicate carbonation, good balance

Could easily pass as an AIPA, very drinkable, ABV is well hidden
