650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy bright orange body. Nice white head. Chunky thick collar.

Smell - Doesn't smell the way I expected it to. It's very tropical, but has a must or mineral aroma too. Kinda detracts. Doesn't smell that sweet.

Taste - Much more dynamic. Orange, some piney hops, lots of tropical fruit. Grainy and a little bitter in the back end.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, maybe pushing medium heavy. Creamy carbonation texture.

Overall - Wasn't enthused at first, but this really grew on me. Very tasty.

A - Fairly hazed, bronzed orange color with a small, compact, light, fluffy white head. Disappears fairly fast leaving only faint patchy lace.

S - Very strong citrus/tropical fruit hop aroma. Grapefruit, peach, hints of passionfruit. Very inviting. Touches of sweet bready and cereal malt.

T - More bitter than the nose suggested, but other than that very similar. Huge citrus hop flavors with a background sweet cereal malt. Resinous and bitter flavors come in pretty strong on the finish.

M - Medium body with average carbonation. Pretty smooth but has a strong, crisp bitter finish.

D - Lovely hop flavors with just enough malt for balance. A touch too bitter and hoppy for me to consider it overly drinkable, but the wonderfully juicy hop flavors make me want more.

Notes: On-tap at Sanctuary. Very enjoyable DIPA. Alcohol is pretty much non existant and even though there is a strong bitterness, it isn't over the top. Galaxy hops are very well displayed. Another great IPA by Toppling Goliath.
