From a bottle had at the brewery last week.

A: It's a DIPA, they almost all look the same: hazy yellow/light golden color with pure white head, lots of frothy volume, good lacing and retention.

S: Apparently this one has New Zealand hops, and all of the beers I had with hops from there had a lychee or gooseberry like aroma to them. This one follows the rule. There is a ton of lychee and sweet grapefruit coming out of this one with even a tiny bit of green grape. The malt is almost indistinguishable.

T: Right off the bat you get attacked by a strong bite of grapefruit rind kind of bitterness. Then, there is a strong wave of juicy sweet lychee, red grapefruit, gooseberry, green grapes and lime juice. Pale malts are there but wayy wayy back.

M: Super light and fluffy with minimal stickiness, perfect.

O: To me, this is better than Abner and puts it on the same level as Double Sunshine. Great great beer and a bit of an exotic twist on the style. Love it!
