Pours with a shout head, light amber, clear. Mild aroma, mostly pine. Flavor balanced for a DIPA, slight sticky bitterness, lingering sweetness but the bitterness doesn't give up. No alcohol bite in the body.

This is outstanding. It's strong and that's good and bad. Wish I could drink a few of these. Tastes of copper and citrus with a hint of malt. Much like their single ipa only better. Great beer in all respects.

Pours a golden color with a decent foam head that retains well and leaves pockets of lace.
Typical IPA aroma consisting of citrus pith, pine resin, spices and herbs. There are also strong hints of caramel malt and some alcohol.
The taste and feel are dynamic. Plump, juicy and sweet at first, which is highlighted by the caramel malts. The mouthfeel is medium to full and chewy during this phase. Then, the hops take over. They dry up the palate and provide a semi intense citrus and pine resin. In the third phase, the fruity and malt sweetness and bitterness from the hops come together providing a nice balance.
Really good DIPA I wish I saw more frequently.
