Orange glowing body. Thin dirty white head. Droopy lace. Looks the part.

A lot of citrus comes through on the nose. Pineapple is primary. (Slight alcohol as well.) Some berries as well....strawberry, and blueberry....but ghostly.

Great elixir of tropical punch flavors and alcohol, but alcohol is fitting for a DIPA. Love the pineapple. Nice tropical concoction.

Medium-full body. Alcohol makes its presence known in a very appropriate way for the style. Like a spiked fruit punch.

For a DIPA, this goes down real easy. Very solid.

A-Burnt orange colored.

S-Nice grungy hop aroma....tobacco, weed, a little pine forest, mixed with some light tropical fruits...backed by a nice toasty, toffee like malt.

T-The flavor really brings out more of a tropical, sweet candied flavor. Like papaya and mango hard candies. A little herbal tea note as well. Toffee like malt backing.

M-Medium to full bodied. 135 IBU's and it does not lend a bad bitterness at all. The ABV seems hidden to me and is not real noticeable.

D-Very enjoyable. A bit unique and loaded with flavor. Very balanced as seems to the be the case with most of their offerings if not all. Might border on old ale territory. A fine line sometimes and the toffee like malt and sweeter malt flavors has me thinking this direction.
