Brilliantly soft orange brew, slightly cloudy and unfiltered-looking, but more or less translucent. Small head from a gentle pour, maybe 1/2 finger, which quickly fades to a thin pure white line. Decent lacing.
Strong tropical hops through the nose, as well as citrus; strongest note is mango. Not particularly sharp hop notes, just strong and sweet.
Tropical hop bomb with mango flavors most prevalent, just as in the nose. I get absolutely no malt specifics, yet the backbone is just enough to keep the hops flowing in perfect balance.
Lovely mouthfeel; slight carbonation sting, very lively, medium to medium-light, low astringency, and most importantly, none of the all-too-typical DIPA syrupy feel.
This is an absolutely incredible beer, among the best DIPAs I've ever had. It's different from HT and PTE, without a doubt,
Originally tried on tap at Parker Pie in VT; review is from a bottle via Malted Barley in RI.
