Although the can promises a brew that straddles the line between an IPA and DIPA, at 100+ IBUs, this definitely drinks more like the latter. A hazy burnt-orange color in the glass, it leads with assertive aromas of orange oil, ripe pineapple, grapefruit peel and yeasty bread. The full-flavor, full-bodied palate offers more of the same, with dense flavors of resinous hop, pine, citrus peel and toasted grain. The finish is clean and dry, with medium-plum bitterness and a touch of toasted spice that lingers.
