Consumed on February 12th, 2013. Poured into a standard pint glass.
Beer is a cross between light burnished copper and deep honey. Very clear. Lots of carbonation. An off-white, nearly-yellow head a finger high forms and provides excellent sheeting on the glass long after it has subsided.
Aromatic in exactly the way expected: piney and grapefruity hops.
Flavor is big and assertive without being overbearing. A little caramel malt quickly gives way to piney and ruby red grapefruit notes. The beer is surprisingly sweet for all that, however. Bitterness is middling to high, but far less than some DIPAs I've had.
This thing is not a hop bomb, but instead a fairly balanced and drinkable brew.
Mouthfeel is slightly thick and a little oily. Decent though not outstanding carbonation and not as dry as might be expected.
Overall, I'd drink this one again.

Pours a hazy golden color with a tinge of orange with a soapy white head that leaves big chunks of lacing.
Smells of bright citrus an tropical hops.
Tastes of the bright hops with a solid malt backbone. Hops lead off with notes of grapefruit, mango, pineapple, and orange. Touches of pine and flowers sneak in. Hops give way to caramel malts which add to the fruits with a little syrup. Hops and malt come to a nice a balance on the end with a little spiciness coming through. Finishes with a touch of lingering sweetness.
Mouthfeel is medium-light with a smooth amount of carbonation.
Overall, this is a very nice DIPA which hits a lot of good notes. If you like a fruity and balanced DIPA, then this is a must try.
