A - Pours a clear amber with a one finger white head. The head recedes quickly leaving a good amount of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is grapefruit and piney hops.

T - The taste is caramel malts, orange peel, grapefruit and piney hops.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Soft mouthfeel with a crisp dry finish.

O - This is a decent DIPA. The finish has a strong bitter finish that goes well with the upfront sweetness.

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 10/26/2016. Pours hazy medium orange/amber color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, caramel, brown sugar, lightly toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, caramel, brown sugar, lightly toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange rind, pepper, pine, caramel, brown sugar, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and no lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, fairly creamy, and slightly slick balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 9%. Overall this is a great DIPA! All around great Great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink for the big ABV. Very vibrant and pretty juicy on hops; with a nice malt backbone, that is not too sweet. A very enjoyable offering.
