look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Pours clear and golden with a finger & a half high, almost white head which drops relatively evenly to a thick film of foam. Mostly solid rings of lacing left behind after every sip.
Smell is solid DIPA: hops, grass, malt with the unusual and quite intriguing addition of sweet pineapple. It works extremely well. Balance is extremely good.
Taste is all that. Malt, hops, grass, pineapple (yeah!), alcohol. Great balance. The pineapple is more subtle on the tongue than in the nose but I like its presence. Not as subtle overall as most DIPA's I've had, though.
Body is a bit over medium while the effervescence is well restrained. A heavy coating of the upper palate occurs. Warming as expected and a touch of dry to the finish.
