22oz bomber purchased in California and brought back to Sydney, where I shared it with Rich and Sam.

Pours a rather clear orange colour, with a solid weight to the body. Head is somewhere between white and off-white, which is probably getting too specific, but full and foamy, leaving some sheeting, intricate lace as it goes down. Carbonation is very fine. Looks good.

Nose is spicy with orange pith dominant mellowed by a rounded barley sugar character. Slight peppery tones come through as well, creating a little crispness. It's not a particularly dynamic nose, but it's certainly very pleasant.

Light entry on the palate with some spicy citrus coming through, leading towards a greener, slightly more herbal bitterness through the centre. This is rounded off again by that sweet barley sugar maltiness towards the back, helping it stay balanced. It's rather clean all up, helped by a peppery bitterness which punctuates the ending. Everything is held in check nicely.

Feel is full, but with a pleasant lightness. It works well.

It's extremely balanced for a DIPA, and as a result it's a lot more drinkable. I certainly enjoyed this a great deal.
