Poured from a 22 into a tulip glass, it is a translucent golden orange color with a frothy off white head. The aroma brings hints of floral and piney hops and plenty of tropical fruit. Mainly getting citrus like orange and grapefruit. The taste follows the nose, the pine flavor is there throughout but not overly strong. There is a heavy hit of citrus. The orange and grapefruit with melon pop up to a lesser extent. A caramel malt backbone really helps to balance the beer, it is not overly sweet and a really nice DIPA. I give the Big Sipper 9 pints out of 10 it is a must try for any IPA fan, drink up!
