Pour: Hazy light orange with a two finger bone white head that dissipated quickly. Left sticky soap like lacing. When held to the light this turns a nice light citrus like color. Lacing is huge, all over the glass with each sip and sticking.
Smell: Big on the citrus and tropical fruits end and getting tangerine orange, pineapple, grapefruit. Just very juicy tropical and citrus. There is a touch of pine/dank hops and a caramel sweetness. Actually the nose is mild for a DIPA and no alcohol detected.
Taste: The mouth is greeted by a fairly nice wallop of bitterness leading to grapefruit, and then the resinous hops take hold. It is much more pine and resin hop in the taste than the nose let on. It has a sweetness to it like a caramel maltiness but overall the pine and sticky resin hops dominate all the way through to the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full with a lot of creamy and sticky feel going on. Light to medium carbonation and mild alcohol detected.
Overall: Was excited at the nose because I much prefer the tropical/citrus IPA's to the piney/resinous ones but actually much enjoyment to be had by this beer.

Small head, disapated quickly. Bunch of white stuff from the rim to the bottom of the glass after all the beer was gone.
Faint smell of a pine needle when you snap it between your fingers.
Leaves a film on your lips like chapstick. That was cool.
Don't really want to write any more words. Just trying to make quota.
Serving type: on-tap
