*Shared this at a very small tasting I had at 4th Avenue Pub in the Park Slope area of Brooklyn. Happy Birthday Lohman!!

Pours a hazy golden in color w/ a 1/2 finger of white head that leaves little to no lacing on the glass. Aromas of Mandarin orange, mango, pineapple, cat piss, and breadiness. The flavor was of big citrus and pineapple up front, giving way to light grapefruit, and closes w/ ever so mild resinous bitterness. Medium bodied and finishes dry. You could pretty much drink this beer all night long, but that would never happen because it is so difficult to acquire.

Overall, this beer is the truth and the best DIPA I have had from the West Coast, even over Pliny, The Elder that is. Now in my all-time top 5. Currently standing in fourth only behind in this order: Sosus, Double Sunshine, and Dinner. Of course, Heady Topper is 5th.
