pours a cloudy orange with a finger and a half of creamy head that quickly settles to a thin ring leaving minimial lacing. big malty aroma backed up by grapefruit and pine. taste is a big malty body with a wave of citrus as it goes down the pipe, and finishing with a dry piney bitterness. overall this is a good dipa, unfortunatly for me there wasnt anything that makes it stand out from the others ive had.
