Received as an extra from jeremy6566, and poured from the can into my Deschutes tulip...
A - Pours a very hazy, speckeley golden yellow with a creamy 3 finger ivory colored head. A nice ring of lacing is left behind when it fades.
S - Woah! The smell fills the room as soon as I pop the can. Great citrus smells of lemon zest, and some trpical fruits like mango and papaya. One of the best smelling DIPAs I've ever smelled.
T/M - The taste really matches the smell nicely! Great juicy tropical fruits on the front, a nice caramel malt middle, and a fresh lemon zest back. Really great hop bitterness aftertaste (which I love!). Medium mouthfeel, great carbonation.
O - This is the perfect example of what a DIPA should be. Mouthfeel isn't too light, hops take center stage, great resinous aftertaste. Great great great all around. If I could get this in Vegas, I would stock up a healthy suply. But I can't, so a huge thanks to jeremy for hooking me up with this gem. Cheers to you bro!
