This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy yellow to orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light stringy lacing roaming around the glass. The smell had a sweet citrus with a bitter citrus rind and an underscore of caramel malt to balance. The taste was bitter and sweet not necessarily combined but delicate in its composure to lead into the aftertaste to leave a dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body. Sessionable - slightly and the alcohol wasn’t felt too much. Bittersweet harshness rolled over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a pretty good DIPA that I could have again.
