Bottles brought back by Justin from Vermont, thanks dude.

Pours a dark orange, with a half inch head, and a little bit of sticky lacing.

Smells sweetly sticky and hoppy, with some caramel malt, overlaid by juicy grapefruit and pineapple.

This is a bit maltier than I would have expected, but remains delicious anyway. So much hoppy and malty sweetness, with a tiny bit of booziness. There's some sweet caramel flavors, along with grapefruit, orange, and pineapple hoppiness, candied and very sweet. There's a tiny bit of pine, but really not a whole lot of bitterness here.

This one is slightly syrupy in the mouthfeel, with a lower amount of carbonation, and a medium body. It is very, very drinkable.

This doesn't quite meet the insane hype that it has, but it's still a top DIPA anyway. Just a bit too sweet to be perfect for me.
