22 oz bottle The D/IPA pours a cloudy light amber with a small head and no lacing. The ale a light resin ,citrus aroma. The taste was more complex with fruity pine and light bitterness. The high ABV was deceptive. This is a wonderful balance D/IPA with a warm bitterness from beginning to end. The medium body ale had soft carbonation. The smooth finish had lingering citrus bitterness that stayed in the upper mouth.

Draft at RBWG meet & greet. Poured a good looking solid deep orange with a creamy average sized bright white head. Fuller body with stronger carbonation and a lingering creamy aftertaste. Aroma and flavor of old citrus, dough, wet toast, grassy hops. This is either way too balanced or a bit old.
