look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

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
