COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This tawny-orange ale immediately assults the senses with the character of hops from the Pacific Northwest. An aroma that combines grapefruit pith and pine resin foreshadows a strongly bitter beer. The flavor is spicy and juicy with citrus dominating over honey and floral notes, then giving way to a dry, chalky bitterness. The almost sweet finish is accentuated by the strength of the alcohol.

Pours amber with a white head. Some hop aroma. Citrus, grapefruit, pine, fruity. This is very drinkable. Awesome DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is truly what I look for in a IPA. Huge hops with citrus tones, with the bitterness that lingers. That kick in the end that adds a touch if sweet. Love it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
