Bottle from my first trip to Chicago, shared at the first Central Ohio Beer Tasting.
This was just about the last beer I sampled that night, so my notes were lacking a little, but this beer deserves a stellar review so I'll give what I've got written down. I also hope to try this on tap this coming weekend in Philadelphia, I will review it on draft or update this at that time.
Smells absolutely wonderful. Very sweet but not overly malty or boozy. Lots of fruit esters floating around. Sweet Amarillo goodness - pineapple, tangerine, and mango.
The flavor was more citrusy - with grapefruit being dominant with some pineapple in the background. Pine also works into the scheme as well.
Overall, an amazingly good DIPA, and at a great price - I believe I paid $7.99 for the bomber at Binny's.

Pours a light and bright gold color with a fine white head.
Aromas are full of mixed citrus notes, oranges, tangerines, and grapefruits. There is also a really fresh, floral, green resin and pine. Dang, this smells wonderful.
Taste starts with full smooth mouthfeel, soft malts, caramel, and sweet cream. Then it's all about the hops, light bitter grapefruits, sweet mandarins, pine, and really fresh resin. This beer is very well balanced.
Mouthfeel is superb, very full, and super smooth. Top notch.
Overall? Phenomenal, this is a wonderful DIPA, there aren't many that can compete with this one.
