Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip.
A nice orange, light amber pour with remarkable clarity. A 1/2 of off white head develops and diminishes slightly but leaves some wonderful lacing.
Super tropically nose. Pretty sweet, notes of pineapple and mango. For being a big hoppy DIPA, the hops aren't as punchy as I was expecting.
Wow. I wasn't expecting the taste to follow the nose with so much tropical fruit. Really sweet mango is the first thing to hit. There's plenty of bitterness (it does say 99 IBUs after all). The finish leaves me with a little note of coconut and then a slight alcohol warmth.
A pretty full mouthfeel with a surprisingly creamy finish. My tongue is tingling, largely from the bitter hops but I think the carbonation plays a role in this as well.
Overall, a fantastic DIPA. I've had a wide variety of DIPAs and this is one of the most complex, flavorful versions I've had before. A real treat. If only they distributed to MN!

Served on tap at Spinoza's in Beavercreek, Ohio. The appearance is unremarkable, but with a solid head and fairly sticky lacing. The smell is tropical fruit--not as pronounced and appealing as, say, White Rajah, but still quite good. The taste consists of mango, orange, and lemon flavors, and the bitterness from the hops just isn't here--imagine, a DIPA without bitterness--instead is sweetness from the citrus hops. The mouthfeel is unusual, but not bad at all--this beer is on the thin side (it could pass for a session beer if not for the high ABV) and moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a DIPA well worth trying.

Great beer! There is a serious complexity to this beer. While it has the hop forward properties of any other DIPA's its smooth, and without a lingering bitter finish. There is a bitterness to it, but there is a malt complexity that changes the finish to make it smooth with a hint of sweetness. This beverage got better with every sip.
