look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours bright golden, light-bodied in appearance. Medium white head that relaxes down.
This smell is all I need in any DIPA. Apricot bouquet, some pine, but the fruit pushes through. Almost smells like that Fruit Stripe gum. Ready to taste this.
Taste follows suit, but an earthy bitterness rushes through, and it ends with the staying power of the big fruity hops. The citrus shines. Tart, resinous, piney. Drying aspect to this, but mighty chewy, certainly tasty. Glad this brewery's bottles are now available in TX.
Slick and smooth oily feel, and as i mentioned then a bit dry at the finish. Some may enjoy the latter, but for me it's the only thing from keeping this from being perfection.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Deep gold to copper in color, crystal clear, thin layer of head around the ring of the glass – 4.50, S: Tons of tropical fruits including mango, bananas and pineapple. I also get quite a bit of melon and grapefruit as well as some bubblegum. A pleasant bready sweetness provides a light brush over the top of the nose, all around a spectacular nose - 4.50, T: Tons of resin and heavily pungent, lots of grapefruit and pith, bitterness is aggressive but is balanced quite well with the sweetness of the caramel malts – 4.25, M: Medium bodied with a mild creaminess and tickle on the tongue from the continuing effervescence – 3.75, D: All around a spectacular beer and great representation of the style – 4.25
