look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: near perfect pale yellow, fairly clear. Head edges and laces the glass. The initial head didn't form much is the only detraction

S: tropical fruits: mango, pineapple mostly

T: the front end taste follows the nose, and has the fruity sweetness that comes with it. The (what I presume is Citra) hops provides the bitterness in transition, the subtle one that occurs. The ending does add a little pine taste, but it's not overwhelming.

M: I like the subtleness of the bitterness in a double, and the beer overall is quite smooth, with decent carbonation.

O: this is right up my alley in form of taste and hop profile. I do wish it added just a little more dryness (but I am nitpicking here).
