Pours a cloudy gold color with a small white head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits, florals, a bit of dank piss, and some sweet malts. The flavor hits the same notes, but is more intensely bitter and showcases more of a floral, citrus peel character. Light-medium bodied, with a bitter, juicy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Good citra DIPA, maybe not as tropical-leaning as others I’ve had.

4.45/5  rDev +0.5%

Appearance: Pours a hazy honey color with a reasonably impressive head that leaves some dots and dashes of lace behind

Smell: Mango, pineapple, orange and grapefruit

Taste: The malts provide a neutral, slightly biscuity platform upon which the hops can perform and perform they do, bringing a range of tropical and citrus flavors; very clean finish with nothing distracting from the beguiling hop flavors

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate but lively carbonation

Overall: Caught this one right in advance of the 2/23 "Drink before" date and I am glad I did as I really like my DIPAs to be crisp and clean

Thanks, lincolnbeard, for the opportunity

Poured from a bomber into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Hadn't even attempted to smell the beer and already picked up the strangely dank and disgusting yet somehow delicious aroma of cat piss. Accompanied by piss is are crisp refreshing citrus notes, grapefruit, flowers, and malt. Very very clean and crisp smelling. Taste is citrus, grapefruit and floral hops leading to sweet malts. I'm finding a great balance in this beer and it's drinking very easy. Finishes with a grainy grassy yet bitter taste. Mouth feel is a notch above medium and right one par with what I expected from an 8.8% abv DIPA. Not much that I don't like about this beer.
