12oz into Ommegang BPA glass.
Very faint off-white head that fades quickly over an extremely clear golden to orange colored body.
Aromas are awesome. Fresh tangerine, pineapple, mango, and sweet maltiness.
Really light on the palate for a DIPA, with flavors of juicy grapefruit, pine, and guava. Great sweet, malt backbone to help balance. Delicious.
Abundant carbonation keeps this one from becoming thick on the mouthfeel. Nice dry finish.
The intense level of the flavor profile is somewhat surprising, given the <8% ABV. Whether this one is a PtE clone or not, it's straight delicious, and I will be searching feverously for a case starting tomorrow morning.
