Definitely pumped to try this. Got a bomber on 10/23 and drank that night.
Burnt orange color and slightly hazy with a white head that lingered. The smell is almost all pine, with a touch of citrus in there. Even though I prefer citrus-heavy IPAs, the smell of this one was awesome - just an incredibly fresh pine resin scent. Taste shifts a little to the citrus side and then at the end there is something like vanilla. Very sweet, but not overly so. Slight oily mouthfeel which seems just right for a DIPA. I took my time drinking this one, and as it warmed the alcohol burn became a little more pronounced - not too much, but noticeable.
Overall a great DIPA and something that will clearly be in the rotation now that it's more widely available.

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Bottleneck says 01302014.
A- Pours a clean medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before reducing to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and various thicknesses of surface foam. Sudsy non-resilient lacing.
S- Pungent and grassy hop aroma that also brings citrus notes like pineapple and grapefruit.
T- The citrus flavors come through in the flavor well coupled with a firm but controlled bitterness. Very drinkable for the ABV and the grass notes linger on the tongue for a bit. Juicy and tangy.
M- Vibrant and sharp with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.
O- I really dig how fruit-forward this DIPA is while having a solid bitterness that's not overbearing. Foothills knows their hops.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, copper-gold coloring with a fluffy, tight bubbled, white head. Aromas of spice and resinous hops, with grapefruit and tropical fruits abound. Flavors are roast forward, with a toffee and roasted backbone supporting a blending of tropical fruit rich sweetness and peppery spiced notes. Balanced and smooth. The aftertaste is resinous and tangy sweet, with a smooth, clean finish. Tasty and surprisingly drinkable.
