An amber color with a one finger head. The clarity of the beer is good and a decent amount of carbonation. The beer did present with some lacing on the glass.
Huge hop profile, floral, grapefruit, citrus (lemons/oranges), herbal, and pine. A decent malt backbone with toasty notes, and some biscuit notes in the background.
Big hop profile grapefruit, oranges, lemons, herbal, pine, and floral. Decent toasted malts and biscuit.
Medium body, medium high carbonation, and a lasting finish.
A good beer but not great, for me the balance in the beer is lacking. I was expecting more; the hop profile is awesome, but the malt backbone lacked sturdiness.

Really good DIPA. The aroma is not so strong but the taste is amazing! The hops and malts compliment eachother very well. This has that dank-like taste thats killer in ipa's. Definitely will be trying other brews from them. Poured into a frozen stein, hazy-golden color with a 1/4 in head.

Pours a clear golden color. Has a malty aroma with notes of light hops. Flavor is clean, has nots of citrus with a malty backbone. Has a nice mouthfeel with a bready like quality. Overall a solid IPA
