4.51/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

(Second serving and clear nose had all of the flavors pop)
Glass Used: Tulip

Appearance: A cloudy orange-gold body, enough so that you cannot see through it .With a light source to the side or behind the glass, the color glows a brilliant honey color. The head was a fluffy white which dissipated leaving ample lace behind. A beautiful DIPA.

Smell: A brilliant bright citrus punch to the nose - grapefruit, orange-tangerine mix, some honeydew melon, a bit floral, lots of pine-resin hoppy aroma.

Taste: Tropical and citrus flavors blast through with a burst of hops following right behind it. The hops do fade quickly with minimal bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Thick feel with a dry finish. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Thanks to Pintofbrown for sending me a growler of this fantastic DIPA. I really enjoyed PseudoSue so I wanted to try this one. Not disappointed. Pretty tasty DIPA from TG.
