From notes. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tulip.

Out of the bottle, my pour is a golden sunshine color with a generous white cap. A bit of sticky lace clings to my glass as I work my way through it.

The aroma is hop forward. Grassy, herbal, with grapefruit, some tropical fruits, and a bit of pine.

Up front a little bit of sweet caramel malt hangs on for a little while, providing a balance that I don't need in my DIPA's. Grapefruit, mango, peach, tangerine, and apricot all provide a strong fruit presence, which overlays a generally grassy bitterness. The malt maintains a bit of sweetness and a chewy breadiness throughout.

The carbonation is creamy and on the full side. Although there is a grainy nature to the beer itself, it also has a smoothness about it. There is no real alcohol presence noticeable in the taste. The bitterness grows with each sip, but there is not an overwhelming aftertaste or anything.

This is definitely a solid beer, but I was not as blown away by it as many other people have been. This is a mystery that may only be resolved with a follow up tasting.
