Dull golden haze of yellow/browned honey with a fairly massive capping of foam thats loosely crumbled and leaves tons cob webby lacing etched to the glass.

Aroma is foggy of weedy/cannibus citric spiced hops backed with dull sweetened pale malt and some subdued caramel. Earthy, floral, herbal, citrusy hops make up most the nose as it steeps in a tea-like soggyness of grimy, dirty, dulled citrusy hops.

Taste is more of the same and much more likeable on the palate as its weedyness sinks deep with a sultry dirty, grimy, greasy, citrusy mold of hops that takes hold immediately with a murky might of muddy orange/grapefruity citrus. The hops are dirty, full of cannibus hints, herbel tea floralness and over ripe citrus of pink and white grapefruit peels back with some pale sweet bready/deeply doughy malt. It cinders with a dull pithy finish of citrus hops that speak to orange pith and mango pit but bitter with herbal weedy vineyness. Nice.

Body is nearly full, quite creamy and easy on the low end of carbonation with lots of greasy, grimy, dirtyness of hops poking forward over a fairly large backing of a paled sweet bready malt underlying tone. But the weedy/cannibus/tea like greasyness makes for a unique twist within its dull citric floral sponge of soaked hoppyness as it smoothes out very nicely with a creamyness and lightly bittered stand of orangified bitterness that lasts well into the finish.

A grimy, greasy, dirty Dbl IPA that is quite the fun ride of hopitude of citric flintyness and hidden ABV that catches you off guard and creates one heck of a nice tone of earthy, off-the-vine hop cone floralness. Drinks down easy enough but will catch up to ya before ya know it.
