4.5/5 rDev +7.7%
First time having this since last year. Pours bright gold with a full, foamy white head. Nose is citrusy, maybe even green apple. Alcohol is definitely present as well. Taste is bitterness up front with a lot of citrus, grapefruit, and some tropical fruit. Quite a bit of malty sweetness as well, but that could be due to age. I believe this batch came out in May. No doubt about the 10%+ ABV here. Pretty boozy but it's covered up well by the hops. Mouthfeel is pretty much dead on. About what I'd expect from any DIPA (or dare I say TIPA). Overall, this is a great brew. I love when this beer hits the shelves, but I don't go out of my way to get it. Stuff like Enjoy By, which is pretty readily available to me all year, is really the best you can get.
