Poured with a nice-half finger of fluffy white foam that stayed nearly the whole way through the samping; great curtains of lacing really left their mark; hazy coppery brown hue, but not too hazy. Really a great looking brew.
Some dank hoppiness in the aroma and then its a really interesting spectrum of hop aromas: cedar at first; then grapefruit, floral notes, and then back to a citrus aroma. Light caramel in the nose, but the hops really shine. Not nearly as aggressive as I thought, but showcases several different hop aromas. Not as bitter in the flavor either, but still pretty damn hoppy. A bit of a heavier malt backing, but not nearly sweet as some others I've had in the range. In another couple of months the hops would be competing too much with the malt, I think. Great range of those hops that mirror the aroma, and lead to a really dry finish. Medium body with nice carbonation, and coats the palate really well. Nice drinking DIPA, especially given the more extreme hop treatment. Would only take this one as fresh as possible.
