Serving: bottle

Appearance: Just like the name says, bright sunshine, slight haze.

Smell: Big citrus, grapefruit. Then some pine.

Taste: More grapefruit and soft malt, crisp pine finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and clean, almost dry quenching.

Overall: Definitely the best DIPA I've had, and probably the best beer overall.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, yellow-copper coloring with a tall, frothy, big bubbled, bright white head and a steady flow of carbonation throughout the body. Nose of rich, floral hops on the forward nose, with a tangy grapefruit backbone blending with a truckload of resiny character. Layered and inviting nose. Wow! Flavors are smooth and balanced, with a grapefruit tart and sweet blending with a peppery and resiny hops character on the forward tongue. Some roast characteristics toward the end of the palate. The hops characteristics provide both floral aromas and bitter, resiny flavor characteristics. Fantastic. Robust body, but light at the same time. The aftertaste is richly sweet and bitter at the same time, with a heavy fistful of hops resin and citrus tenderizing your palate into a blissful state. Smooth, bitter finish with a slightly drying feel. Fantastic beer!
