12oz bottle, Best By 10/29/18. A thick frothy ivory head holds excellent retention atop a slightly hazed copper colored ale. Aroma is citrus, bready malt, and caramel. For flavor, assertive citrus and piney bitterness meets bold malt notes of toasty bread crust and caramel malt. Full body, resinous yet creamy, finishes dry with a long bitter pine resin finish. Just as the label suggests: bold hops and bold malts meet for a balanced DIPA - great flavors here.
