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

12oz bottle (bottled 12/8/10) poured into a tulip/snifter.

A: Pours hazy gold, 1.5 finger white beautiful fluffy head that sticks around for a while and leaves a ton of lacing.

S: Heavenly! I can smell tons of apricot, tangerine, mango, and other citrus from FEET away!

T: Wow this is juicy. Tropical citrus is absolutely bursting out. The main trio of flavors seems to be the apricot, tangerine, and mango with some grapefruit/pine bitterness in the background and a little lemon. Malt character is fairly strong and caramel sweet, but compliments the juicy hops just about perfectly. Alcohol is fairly well hidden, it's just a little spicy and has a nice sharp warming finish. This isn't as bitter as I was expecting, especially on the finish, but I'd bet the 2 months has muted the bitterness to an extent. I've heard that this is quite similar to Sculpin in taste and I concur. Delicious!

M: Light to medium carbonation, body is pretty thick and viscous for the style. Extremely chewy and sticky, coating the entire mouth. Really smooth. Only improvement would be more bitterness, though fresh might just do it.

D: 9.4% ABV is nothing to sneeze at, but the alcohol is well integrated and it's too delicious to keep the beer out of my hands. Sculpin so far is my favorite IPA, with Double Trouble I think I've found my favorite DIPA.
