Listening to: Bobby Hebb (RIP) - Sunny
A - More of a light golden color than I am used to in a DIPA, but as a style that is so new, I don't feel that any color profile defines the style. Clarity is great with a light, white short head.
S - Shared bottle between four of us and it was split between tropical passion fruit fully and two of us who felt a tinge of ammonia on the borders of a deep inhale.
T - True tropical fruit sweetness, which is a nice alternative in a DIPA. I actually had this side by side with one of my favorite DIPAs (Racer X) and it was amazing to think that these two beers even shared the same style when compared against the deep malt and pine.
M - Thinner than most DIPA's, which may throw some people but makes it a good option for a high ABV summer ale.
D - Deceivingly drinkable because of the lighter body. I saw the one other reviewer repeatedly talk about the alcohol, but I actually thought that it was hidden very well considering the light body. I think that this is a good regional twist on a DIPA. It doesn't try to replicate a West Coast style, but appears to be more fitting as a DIPA for the South East humid summers.

A: Pours a nice cloudy orange with a cream colored two finger head that settles nicely coating the edge of the glass.
S: There is citrus and ripe melon in the nose along with some biscuit. A little dank.
T: Tastes of pine, mango, tangerine, some caramel notes.
M: Nice mouthfeel overall, resiny, a little sweetness with a light spicy bite and some mustiness on the finish.
O: An interesting brew overall, somewhat remniscent of early batches of Devils Dancer.
