Poured into a tulip glass this beer is a reddish orange with a nice quarter inch head. Smell is of grapefruit, floral, orange pulp, grass, lemon, with minor earth and malt notes. Taste of bitter. Lots of bitter. Some piney resin, grass, earthy flavors, and citrus. Has a medium mouth feel with a okay amount of carbonation.

3rd tasting of the evening. Pours clear golden amber, fluffy, bubbly head. Fruity, piney scent and taste follows. Goes smooth, with a tiny bite. I shall now liberate the rest of this brew from the glass.

a - poured a one finger thick off-white head into a snifter that left good lacing throughout. the body was a dark amber color.
s - big citrus aromas like grapefruit and orange. hint of pine and floral hops too.
t - same as the aroma with a little more pine flavors.
m - medium mouthfeel, great carbonation.
o - hops really done well here, very drinkable too.

If you enjoy DIPA's then I will go out on a limb and say you will like this one. Too hoppy for my taste but sure hop heads will like it.
