eyes...
slightly cloudy burnt orange hue, big bubbles in white head which doesn't even stick around for a cup of coffee, lacing is decent, mild streams of carbonation rush up the glass to keep some foam lingering

nose...
mild herbal and citrus hops, not too much else

taste etc....
a bit under carbonated, mild tropical hops, mild bitterness, some good lingering notes, mouth feel is medium but light enough to not weigh this down, drinkable

verdict?
ginormous my tuchus... nothing big about this beer, it is not a bad beer but it is a borderline DIPA in this stage of the game, some nice bitterness and pretty easy drinking but nothing that throttles this reviewer.
