4.31/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

22oz bottle poured into an IPA glass. Bottled 7/12 and consumed on 9/6.

A - Light orange with less than a finger head. Significant carbonation. Head slowly dissipates. Delicate lacing as beer is consumed.

S - Very nice. Mango, orange, and perhaps some other acidic tropical fruits greet you after the pour.

T - Lemon, peach, white grape, followed by some grapefruit rind. Does not hide ABV, but not unpleasant... alcohol hints are definitely there. Not as hoppy or bitter as I expected. The lasting finish is not bitter hops, but rather a slightly malty raisin alcohol finish.

M - Well carbonated, but on the whole, not remarkable when compared with top tier DIPA's. However, this is still a great beer.

O - I'd place this in the 80-85th percentile of DIPA's I have tried. The appearance and smell were top notch. Taste and mouth feel were very good. I would gladly drink again, but in my opinion, I have had better.
