Thanks to beerman207 for cracking this one over the weekend. Review is from notes taken on 3/27/2010 and poured from the bottle to a pint glass.

Appearance: A solid light coppery color that starts with a one finger white head that fades to a thin and full skim; body is clear; very little carbonation and it moves slowly in thin streams; spotty washes of lacing hold firm to the sides of glass.

Smell: I get some orange and juicy citrus hops and a slight malty balance; the nose is pretty strong on this and I can appreciate that. I'm digging the juiciness coming from the smell of the hops and I feel that this one is going to be quite refreshing.

Taste: Very tasty, simple and good! Juicy citrus orange hoppy bitterness owns this one and there is a mild malty backing that adds just enough sweetness to balance it out; simple, solid and straightforward -- hides nothing and you get what you expect and want from this DIPA.

Mouthfeel: Quite nice, not much weight with a mild and soft carbonation that comes across very smooth; a nice stickiness is left on the roof of the mouth.

Drinkability: All day, baby! Nice and refreshing bitterness and a fairly light body would allow me to feel OK about getting through a couple of these - granted, the ABV seems a bit high, but it didn't feel all that bad so I think if I nursed it, I'd be glad to get through a couple.
