22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy deep orange copper color with a 1 finger dense cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of mango, pineapple, peach, tangerine, grapefruit, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, candi sugar, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of hop notes with a balanced malt profile; and good strength. Taste of mango, pineapple, orange peel, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, floral, light pine, caramel, candi sugar, and floral earthiness. Light pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, tropical fruit, floral, light pine, caramel, candi sugar, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity of hop flavors; with a well balanced malt backbone and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a slick and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice DIPA style. All around good balance and complexity of hop and malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Served chilled into a fluted tulip.
Pours a rich copper/amber color with a quarter inch of light beige head that quickly recedes leaving light surface layer and lacing.
Aromas of caramelized sugars and citrus.
Flavors of the aforementioned caramelized sugars along with candied orange peel. Hints of pine and floral notes, as well. A full range of hop flavors.
Moderate to heavy mouth feel with light carbonation and sweet finish. Lingering bitter aftertaste.
Overall a nice representation of the style, with a complex hop profile and sweet body.
