Can't believe I hadn't reviewed this before! One of my favorites.

Poured to a tulip from a bomber.

A - Perfect. Gorgeous gold with excellent clarity. Rich tan head that persists as a thin, soft layer leaving lacing to the bottom of the glass.

S - Very complex. Sweet honey malt up front quickly overpowered by dank hops. Plenty of pine, resin, and a hint of citrus present as well. Rather clean fermentation.

T - Similar to aroma. High hop bitterness, but balanced nicely by the sweet, toasty malt. Dank hop flavor somewhat overwhelms the other hops. Some pine and citrus, as well as a little cattiness add to the complexity.

M - Medium body, but high carbonation makes it seem a bit lighter. Very drinkable for a DIPA. Subtle alcohol warmth, but well-hidden. Dry, hoppy, slightly alcoholic finish that lasts and lasts.

O - Outstanding and one of my favorites. Only improvement (to me) would be a bit different hop character, upping the pine and citrus over the dankness.

Cheers!
