Hazy, cloudy golden yellow with almost a finger of head. Adequate lacing. Decent retention. Looks good, if a little light in color for a DIPA.
Whoo-hoo! Luscious hop aromatics , really citrus, mingled with malts, fruits and some banana. Very nice balance on the nose. A real delight and a sure preview of what's to follow in the mouth.
WAABAMM!!! Dittos, the flavors are right on par with what the nose previewed, and then some. Really sweet citrus, some tropical fruits with solid malt characters. The hops really shine in this one. Nice light dryness there, also. But not overly so. For those who like the citrus flavors in their IPAs, you will love this. Alcohol well-hidden.
Body is rather medium for a beer heavy on flavor and alcohol. Appropriate carbonation levels.
This is a solid Double/Imperial IPA, a true hophead's orgasm. Recommend. I hope I will be able to get it more often.

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.
