look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A beautiful liquid gold body hosts a inch tall foamy tan head. As you pour, and from then on the real stand out is the aroma. Without even trying, I can pick up the fragrant smell that permeates from this beer. The nose bursts with floral citrus in a wonderful bouquet. Truely mouthwatering even without my first taste.

Fresh ripe citrus bursts with the first sip. The mouth is painted with distinct resin like bitterness that really lingers. Alcohol is slightly noticeable at this point. Bitterness turns a bit more prickly as you continue to drink. Dryness really builds with each sip. This is a wonderful DIPA. Just classic.

the type of beer that I must have again. luckily it is around jersey and pretty fresh! probly one of my new top dipa's. has a lot of subtle complexities, not sure where they hid those hops, they're coming out in the most elegant ways, and it just goes down like nothin
