My first review, so bare with me.
Poured into a Unibroue tulip glass
A: Appears golden, unable to see through the golden color, decent head and lacing
S: Citrusy, tropical fruits, tangerines
M: Not bad, a step above the average beer's mouthfeel but nothing to write home about
T: TANGERINES! Literally tastes like tangerines, with a hoppy grapefruit like finish, pineapple as well?
O: This is a new favorite for IIPA's, while this may be my first review on BA, I have been trying every IIPA I can get my hands on and review them off the record, but I finally decided it is time! I'd highly recommend this beer especially if you don't mind your IIPA's to have that tangerine, grapefruit like flavor. The malt in my mind is very subtle, but with this beer style, I think that is fairly normal. Either way, this is a solid 4.5 beer in my book, can't wait to have another. Cheers!

served from bottle, slightly over a month old.
pours a hazy straw-yellow. small rocky head that dissipates and clings to side of glass.
smells of pungent hops, cannabis, pine, and tropical notes with citrus (this beer is brewed with Summit, Simcoe and Amarillo hops)
front of the tongue has a big wallop of bitterness that quickly transitions to a pungent, dank taste - the sort of typical Simcoe taste. follows with a nice sweetness, citrus and tropical notes, slightly sugary. really well balanced!
overall, this is a great DIPA. great representation of the style, and this brew is incredibly balanced between pungent bitterness and sweeter notes.
