Growler pour sampled at mrbubbler's tasting courtesy of brwilson.

Pours a clear honey orange with an off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is awesome with honey, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and wood aromas. Taste is the same with a medium level of bitterness after each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good wood aged DIPA with a fantastic smell.
