On tap at Southern Sun: Pours a clear deep golden brass with a clingy-lacing white head. Has a big fresh citrus and pine hoppy nose with some sweet malty undertones. Starts with good fullness and fine carbonation with lightly toasted pale malts that give way to a large resinous hop flavor and smooth bitter balance before a slightly drier, floral finish. Packed with flavor and hides the alcohol well. A very nice double IPA.
