Growler filled 8/8/14 and poured next day into Belgian ale glass.

A) Pale cloudy amber-yellow with a two-finger head, significant retention, and plenty of lacing.

S) Very strong grapefruit up front from the hops. Some orange, lemon. Malts in background.

T) Grapefruit, orange, lemon, some tropical notes as well. A little bit of pepper on the finish. Dry malt in background.

M) Medium-body, medium-carbonation, dry finish. Unbelievable balance. This is fantastic.

Just phenomenal. Right up there with the very best of DIPAs.

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.
