Growler from the source. Pour is a dark copperish amber with a small amount of white head. Nose has some grain up front, lots of hops, a bit of resinous hops dominate but citrus and grapefruit make an appearance. Taste is a bit boozy and sweet, lots of hop presence, candied oranges, hop resin, citrus. Moderately carbonated, smooth feel, decent body.

Nice golden/orange pour with nice frothy head; Beautiful bouquet of tropical fruits, and tropical fruit bomb taste; fairly smooth mouthfeel; gorgeous lacing over the newly developed IPA glass. Hides alcohol level ridiculously well! A must have for IPA junkies!!
