Pours a golden amber capped with a two and half finger bright white two and half finger head. Excellent retention and significant lacing. A bunch of tropical fruit notes on the nose with hints of flora. Pineapple leads the way joined by mango and papaya. A wave of sweet malt with a hint of caramel midpalate. Finishes with some bittering grapefruit rind smoothed out by sweet malt tones. Big, full body that is slick, but pleasantly creamy with velvety accents. Big malt backbone. This really is an exceptionally balanced DIPA that compares favorably with brews considered to be among the upper echelon.

Gotta love the new 12oz format.

Appearance: Crystal clear gold with some darker orange highlights. Head is bright-white, creamy, rocky, and starts off massive. Drops to a thin cap and a small, smooth, creamy collar. Moderate carbonation. Crazy sticky lacing.

Smell: Tropical fruit. Pine resin. Oily citrus. Orange and grapefruit flesh. Loaded with tangerine. Malts run a little sweet and bready, a nice compliment. Some underlying caramel sweetness. Pale malt influence. Floral backing. Sweet and hoppy.

Taste: Oily citrus. Grapefruit and orange coupled with a good amount of tangerine. Some pith. Pine resin. Sticky sweet. Some backing caramel malt sweetness. Biscuit. A leafy herbal hop note. Some floral elements as well. Juicy and wet. A bit of an aspirin-like bitterness sneaks in as the beer warms. A bit sweet overall. Vaguely minty at times.

Mouthfeel: Slick and smooth. Medium body with a moderate carbonation. A bit dry on the back, but wet and juicy.

Overall: Like a Slip 'n Slide

Fresh this thing is a beast. Loaded with hop flavor. Big and juicy. Drinks like a pine-infused citrus fruit. This is a good thing.
