3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a white head. Aroma is hoppy, I get grapefruit, orange, peach, resin and pine, caramel, toffee and sweet malt. The flavor follows the nose but has that old hop tea leaf flavor, again grapefruit and orange, resin and pine with caramel and sweet malt. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a tasty DIPA.
