A - Pours out a copperish color, with a sticky head. Not tons of lacing, but maybe the dishwasher didn't clean it well enough.
S- Smell is big resinous hops. Smell some pine, and some wild tropical scents in there as well, faint alcohol.
T- Taste is densely layered with hops. Some pine, some lemony citrus, tons of grapefruits, and some wild ass flavors, probably from Citra hops. A hoplover's wet dream for sure.
M- Mouthfeel is rich, slightly syrupy but nothing getting in the way of drinkability. Just a big hoppy beer.''
O- Overall another impressive brew from hopmasters Sierra Nevada. I've had more IPA's or DIPA's than I can count but they still do it best, using the best ingredients and some of the best brewing methods. Pound for pound one of the best brands, and in this case, beers you can buy at the store.
