A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high white head that has good retention properties and consistently left a short head and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of white grapes are present in the nose along with hints of tangerine and passion fruit.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of white grapes and passionfruit. Little to no bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA does a good job at hiding any traces of alcohol from the taste.

Serving type: can

On tap at Grimm in Brooklyn.

Pours a hazy orange with soft, soapy foam.

Smell is juicy and a bit sweet with notes of apricot marmalade, mango and peach candy.

Taste keeps the notes from the nose and augments them with some grassiness, a soft bitterness and some booze.

Mouthfeel is medium, soft and well carbonated.

Overall, a very nice DIPA, deceptively easy to drink.
