Pours a clear amber with slight hints of red with a huge fluffy white head that lingered for a long while and left good lacing. The aroma is fairly tame for a DIPA, starting with some floral pine hop aromas with a big sweet malty backbone. Citrus hops come on in the finish. The taste is much more hop-forward than the nose let on. The pine hops hit hard up front with a nice abrasive bitterness that also shows up the finish. In between, the sweet caramel malts are present but less dominant than the aroma. The mouthfeel follows on from the taste with a hop resin stickiness and good carbonation.
