After drinking 3 bottles of this over a span of a week, I had to review it because it just seemed to get better an better each time.

Nice pour into my glass with good size white head. Beautiful sunset orange color when held up to the light. You can smell this beer from 2 feet away and it smells glorious. Bursting citra hops come at you with a tropical wave of mango and pineapple followed by pungent dank hops. After a few sips it is safe to say that the taste follows the nose very well. First comes the juicy tropical fruits followed by a decent hop bitterness and only a slight sweetness. good sticky lacing follows this beer down the glass. Not very balanced as far as any malt goes, but this is exactly how I like my DIPA's. Nice mouthfeel with good carbonation and good mixture of hop flavor and bitterness. This is a fantastic beer and deserves all of the praise that it gets.
