Hazy saturated orange color, thin layer of foam on top, lasting collar of lace. Long lasting surface coverage.

Subdued citrus aroma, slight pale malt, fairly dry. For a DIPA, it's too mellow.

Orange and grapefruit flavors, some yeasty esters, creamy and smooth. Fairly moderate bitterness lingers in the back, not a bruiser, it's more balanced. Slightly sticky on the lips but not especially sweet, it finishes dry. It's very drinkable and mild fruity DIPA, but not super punchy or unique. Still it's well put together and the abv is nowhere to be found.

(Served in a nonic)

A- This beer pours a deep orange body with strands of microbubbles supporting a sticky white head that clings to the glass after each sip.

S- The clean candy citrus hints lead to more full apricot hops and a nice green hop with hints of mint in the finish.

T- The lifesaver candy quality to the fruity hops leads to a nice pungent hop flavor that is full in the finish. The slight sweetness of malt comes through more as pale malt as the beer opens.

M- The light mouthfeel leads to a soft alcohol warmth and a nice carbonation bite that enhances the hops

O- The nice jammy or candy fruit flavors to the hops mixed with pungent green hop flavors means I couldn't stop sniffing this beer. The malt plays a nice supporting role and makes this beer very drinkable.
