Poured from a bottle into a Goose Island tulip. The beer pours out a pale orange-gold color, slightly hazy, with a really tight 3 fingers of white head that sticks around like grim death. Really great nose on this beer! Lost of sweet and tart tropical fruit notes like pineapples, ripe peaches, lemons, sour apple jolly ranchers, and oranges.
Medium-light body and intense hoppy, citrus-fruit flavor. Slight bready sweetness up front with a hint of pineapple and orange marmalade, and then lots of fruity, lemony bitterness crashes in. The beer provides a sweet backbone that balances out the attack nicely (impressive since the ABV is not what one usually considers typical of a IIPA), but never ever makes the taste medicinal. In the back of the palate, I get a dank, hemp-like undertaste that joins forces with the sweetness as they battle the hops, but we all know who wins. The finish is fruity sweet, bitter, and very, very appetizing, with lingering flavors of lemon and pineapple. This beer goes down way too easy and way too fast!
Crazy good IIPA! It strikes me as a cross between Hop Slam (for the sweetness) and GL Alchemy Hour (for the citrus fruit, body, and the dank flavor on the back of the palate). I'm smitten.

Thanks for opening this with me, VaTechHopHead!
Clear, bright, vibrant dark orange. Moderately-sized white head of large bubbles. Ribbons and irregular lines of lacing down the glass. Very pretty IPA.
Incredible aroma, and my favorite aspect of this beer. If I didn't know any better, I would suggest this was definitely brewed with Nelson hops, and perhaps some Citra. Apparently, this is a Mosaic-hopped DIPA, and I am a fan. Grapefruit, sweet cracker, juicy citrus, and a bit of dank. An incredibly, hop-forward, succulent, juicy, hop experience.
The flavor is similar to the aroma with lots of accompanying bitterness as well. The juicy and bitter citrus notes combine very nicely with the bold bitterness. Some sweet Animal Cracker cookie sweetness complements as well.
Medium to near-full bodied for the style with moderate carbonation. Crisp and clean flavors.
This one goes down easy. This is a delicious IPA that rivals the best San Diego puts out.

This beer rocks! It's cloudy orange to yellow body is full of hoppy details & packed with citrus! There's a great sweet note from the malts & it's feels so good in your mouth you almost want to chug it! This is a perfect beer in my opinion & you need to get your hands on it if you can. Delicious!
