Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Cloudy light amber color with small head. Sweet caramel aroma, some toffee, mild hop fruitiness, olive oil. Lean mouthfeel, with just a moderate level of sweetness; strong caramel flavor with a toffee accent; powerful bitterness; the hops are very resiny, piney, and also with a strong bitter orange character.
Old school; pleasant because not sticky; among DIPAs, a quaffable one.

Drank in tulip glass poured from bomber from alaska. Aroma - not much of an aroma clean scent. Not heavy on hop aroma. Appearance - beautiful glowing orangish red. Burnt rubber color. Taste - boom. Fantastic. So smooth and tasty with just enough bitterness. Loving it. Palate - nice bitter finish. Overall - very very enjoyable. One of my favorite DIPAs.
