Bottle > Tulip Pint
A - Cloudy orange amber with a finger of foamy white head, little lacing.
S - Aroma is kinda nice, orange, citrus zest, bready malt, pine.
T - Bread malt forms the base, not as much hop potency as I'd like in a double IPA, though the alcohol sneaks up on you thats for sure, its got all your basic citrus hop profiles, and a sweet finish.
M - Chewy but goes down smooth.
O - Decent but nothing great, glad to have tried it.

Pours clear amber with a one finger white head. The head has very good retention, and leaves a nice lace. the aroma has grapefruit, oranges, floral hops, and caramel malt.

Has a nice combination of sweetness and bitterness with grapefruit, oranges, floral hops, caramel malt, and pineapple. Very nicely balanced.

Medium bodied with modest carbonation. Light citrus aftertaste. The alcohol is very well disguised. Finishes somewhat dry. A very well made beer, well worth trying.
