Poured from the bottle into a pint glass.

Appeared a cloudy golden orange color with a 1 finger, perfectly white head that vanished quickly.

Smelled of intense citrus and pine. Very little malt in the nose.

Taste is delicious. First you are hit with citrus, followed by some pine in the finish. Light sweetness balances it all out. This is one where the hops shine - little behind them.

Solid mouthfeel - medium carbonation. Almost silky.

Overall this is an amazing DIPA.

Had this fine gem on tap in Waterbury, VT after hearing so many good things about it. I'm a lover of IPAs and this one ranks up there, Top 5 for me all time. Smell was a full floral scent, a mixture of hops and citrus. The taste was very similar to Heady Topper. If there are differences, they are slightly noticeable. Very light tasting with a slight bitterness to it but very well balanced. This is one of the best IPAs out there. Not quite better than Heady but I would definitely rank it above Pliny. Love this IPA and can't wait to have it again.
