On tap at HF, and then out of a growler the next day. Pour into a sample glass and into a standard pint.
Pours a fantastic, hazy yellow. Foamy, thin white head and great lacing. The head is dense, and looks like meringue, which foreshadows the lemony, grapefruit deliciousness to come.
The aroma is sweet, yet has a bit of a sharp pine bite to it. It's a bit mild, but does have just a slight booze presence as well.
The taste, however, has no booze whatsoever. This beer is just spectacular. It's lemon/pineapple/grapfruit profile truly mimics a holiday dessert, but the bitter finish reminds you that it's an potent IPA that you are consuming instead. There's just a touch of sweetness to bring out the flavors, but it's mostly a bitter bomb of pure citrus. The citrus combo is as clean as it is potent, however, and isn't harsh at all. Even the lingering bitterness just disappears from your palate, leaving you thirsting for more.
I tried my damndest to find a fault with this brew, but there really are none. It is dangerously drinkable, unbelievably quenching, and I would highly recommend sharing a growler with a few friends. It goes down quickly and easily.

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.
