Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber.
Pours a nearly clear medium gold with a thick one finger white head. Awesome head retention and really good lacing left on the sides of the glass.
Great hop aroma full of tropical fruit. Orange and mango along with some pineapple and tangerine. No malt at all with hops providing all of the aroma. Truly outstanding.
This hop dominance carries over into the taste. A huge rush of juicy tropical citrus that never really goes away. Orange and tangerine along with a touch of pineapple. A very light touch of bread in the background from the malt but it remains restrained and allows the hops to shine. A moderate bitterness and a slight warming in the back of the throat from the alcohol. Finish a pretty crisp and dry considering the abv.
Overall, what an amazing IIPA. The drinkability on this is incredible. I had no idea what the abv was before seeing it on here and guessed it was around 7.5% That's how well it is hidden. Truly a beer to pick up should you come across it.

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.
