Yowza. I stumbled across this very pleasant surprise in an unlikely hole in the wall. They had no idea what it was, or why/how they secured it. Lucky me. This DIPA is as close to perfection as I could possibly imagine. Beautiful orange glow, sleight head, lots of tiny bubbles. Good if minimal lacing throughout. Incredible nose of piney floral grapefruit, luscious mouthfeel, and charming malts which more than balance/hide the alcohol. So easy and pleasant to drink. If I have to die by drowning, I hope they drown me with this. It's absolutely incredible all the way across the board.

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass. No obvious freshness date but it was purchased about 5 weeks ago at Wine Warehouse (Charlottesville, VA).

A: Slightly hazy orange-amber with copious 2-3 finger, frothy and rocky off-white head with good retention and a nice crust of lacing around the top of the glass.

S: Very nice tropical fruit and grapefruit/orange citrus hops aromas, some catty and earthy herbal aromas as well, not much in the malt department, no yeast elements

T: Very lush flavor profile with passionfruit, pineapple tropical fruit flavors combined with more classic grapefruit and pine. No cattiness in the flavor and there is a light vegetative tanic note in the finish near the end. The malt component is unassuming with some lighter crystal malt but mainly just a basic baseline pale malt without much sweetness. There is no yeast presence. The bitterness is moderate and creeps up on you as the bottle nears completion. Alcohol is very well-hidden.

M: Also a very lush mouthfeel with medium body, light carbonation and a moderately dry finish despite the bolder feel on the palate initially.

O: A really good beer although I have to qualify that I tried the first one of these the first of second day after I bought the 4-pack, and the flavors were dominated by tangy herbaceous aromas and flavors that masked the excellent tropical and citrus fruit elements that are the real personality of this beer. I am glad I let one calm down (probably a little settling out) because it was a very rewarding DIPA.
