Poured into my DFH glass a very nice cloudy golden orange color, nice carbonation, with a very nice thick one-finger creamy off-white head, with some sticky lacing left behind. The nose is hoppy with some malt notes, lots of citrus and pine notes. The taste is sweet, hoppy, slightly malty, very nice citrus/pine notes. Medium body, with a nice bitter/dry finish. This is a very nice DIPA, glad to finally try it and it's here in Utah.

Pours a light golden color.

This has a fantastic bouquet of pine and grapefruit. Very floral. Some sweetness, a little chew, a touch of pine. It’s amazingly light and quaffable for a strong DIPA, deliciously so. Called “the nectar of the gods” by someone who took a sip, and I’m borrowing that phrase because it’s so apt. Wow.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy orange with an ample white head
S: Smells of citrus, pine, a little spicy and some caramel. Very delicious
T: very light and delicate flavor that starts off sweet with some caramel and some grapefruit from the hops kicks in in the middle with a spicy and piney aftertaste on the swallow.
M: A little on the thin side but not too much so with slightly prickly carbonation but not overbearingly so.
O: Not bad, a little light on flavor but well balanced. Definitely a solid beer if a bit lacking. I like my stuff to be hop heavy but this one shouldn't disappoint.
