Everytime, I drink this beer. It's like my first time.
Clean crisp
Earthy smell
Fresh smells like I am standing in a field of hops

poured a orange/yellowish color with a bubbly white head. smells like like grapefruit and earthy pine. taste was almost so grapefruity it was tart and sour. amazingly smooth and each sip grew with more hops. Texture was kind of thick. Def overrated in my eyes for a double ipa but I would say this is top 15 dipas in my book
