look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 750mL growler into a Spencer goblet. Filled 5/16, consumed 5/18.
A vigorous pour yields a glowing, hazy deep yellow liquid with a tight bone-white head, maybe two fingers high. Good retention and plentiful, sticky webs of lacing.
In the nose, massive displays of fresh tropical fruits. Copious pineapple, as well as ruby red grapefruit, mango, passionfruit, orange, and hints of pine resin and pale malt.
In the mouth, juicy grapefruit up front, with pineapple, mango, passionfruit, and lemon zest all playing supporting roles. Subtly sweet pale malt appears mid-palate, as well as something I can best describe as an almost Chardonnay grape-like vinous note. Finishes dry and slightly earthy.
Mouthfeel is excellent--creamy and lush, with good carbonation keeping the beer lively and easy-drinking. No hint of alcohol here at all.
On the whole, this was everything I had hoped it would be. A truly world-class beer from my neighbors in VT, and reason enough unto itself to make the 4-hour pilgrimage. I can't wait to try the rest of the beers I picked up from Shaun Hill & Co.

Poured from a 22. Extremely bright yellow (2-3 SRM), hazy. Well but not overly carbonated. Reeks of tropical fruits and pungent hops. Tastes like a funky hop/pineapple creamsicle. Mouthfeel is unbelievably dense and chewy despite it's extreme drinkability. Hops linger on the tongue for what seems like forever. Wow! This might be the best DIPA I've ever had. Highly recommended.
