4.26/5 rDev -1.8%
22 oz. bottle. Bottled on 5/17/13.
Bronzed orange body. Clear and clean. Two fingers of thick, dense, bright light beige head. Beautiful lacing and great retention. Lots of citrus on the nose. Orange marmalade and grapefruit. Tropical, peppery edge to it all. Spicy alcohol and caramel malts as well.
Light toasted malt up front. Big hops take over. Juicy mandarin orange and pineapple mix with sweetish candy malt and fill in. Peppery, spicy alcohol and herbal, citrusy hops dominate. Bitterness builds toward the finish. Dries out with warming undercurrents in the finish. Lots of lingering citrus and tropical fruit. Medium-full body with a slightly oily feel. Very nicely done!

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves some nice lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of grapefruit, citrus, piney resins and some sweet malts.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has alot of grapefruit upfront with some citrus, piney resins, sweet caramelly malts and some breadiness.
Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

Beer is an orange/peach colored and pours a large, just off-white head. Head has okay retention and heavy lacing.Has a very juicy nose that consists mainly of tangerine and grapefruit. Also has resin and a bit of bread.
Resin catches up the tropical fruit in the taste. Taste starts with a bit of resin, then quickly moves to grapefruit and lemon with a bit of tangerine. Has a piney, resiny finish. Has a great fruity and slightly resiny aftertaste. Has a medium body with some creaminess and breadiness and above average carbonation for a DIPA.
Really great DIPA, love the juicy-ness and the resiny flavor is great too.
