A fairly complex Double IPA that pours a deep copper color with ruby highlights and a long-lasting tan head. The aroma greets the drinker with a prominent stone fruit hop aroma with hints of pineapple and a subtle bready and toasty maltiness with a light caramel character in the background. The flavor builds on the aroma with a moderate resin and stone fruit hop character followed by a light bready malt flavor with a just suggestion of caramel. The solid hop bitterness lingers through a light residual sweetness, yielding to an appropriately dry finish that allows the hop character to shine through.
