Thanks to Wowcoolman/AndrewK/drewone for sharing this one at GRG1313's tasting.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and floral hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice citrus forward hop presence all around.

Growler from the source, which I brought to share at Pin's. Thanks to Tony for the hook-up!

Golden orange color, clear, with a foamy white head that retained well and left strands of lacing on the glass. Dank and resinous in the nose, ripe tropical fruits and some citrus rind. Taste was similar, big hop profile going on, pine, citrus rind, orange marmalade, ripe pineapple, distant pale malt sweetness; lots of hoppiness without being palate-wreckingly bitter. Medium body, easy drinkability. This is how DIPAs should be done.

Catching up on reviews from September. This was freshly released at the Pitt location, served on tap in a snifter. The brew appears a polished clear golden orange with a white cap. Some stringy lace sticks to the glass.

The smell is as tropical as any non-fruited brew I have ever smelled. Floral, resinous with grapefruit juice and some herbs. An absolute fantastic set of aromatics to this.

The taste is dank yet rindy like orange, mandarin and grapefruit juice. Rindy and zesty with pithy bitterness. So much hop flavoring without getting excessively bitter. There is a faint dry malt backing.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. This is a downright crushable, amazing dipa. Even better than the freshest headhunter. This beer absolutely spoiled me, after drinking it, I didnt want anything else, just more IBUsive. I really hope to come across this again, would love to have more.

Pours a perfectly clear, bright copper color. Smells like citrus and other tropical fruits like mango and papaya. In the taste, citrus and pine and a honeyed malt character. Medium bodied ale with a good level of carbonation. Overall this is a damn fine IPA. I would love to get this in six packs.
