Intro: A 200ml pour on draft at Mikkeller Bangkok into a mini stemmed wine glass.
Appearance: A slightly hazy golden orange colour with a two finger white head with good retention that leaves fluffy sticky lacing.
Aroma: Pineapple, grapefruit and piney with hints of breadiness.
Taste: Citrusy and bitter with citrus peel, grapefruit and a hint of lemon and grass. Biscuit like towards the end with lasting bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation.
Overall: A great DIPA with nice bitterness. Another that I would pick up bottles of if I could.
