Been trying to get this for SO long. Had the likes of Heady, Double Sunshine, King Sue, Abner, etc. Needed this to say I have tried some of the best DIPAs out there.

Appearance is gorgeous. I'd love a little fluffier, more sustained head, but don't we all just want a little more head? ;)

Aroma is ridiculous. Up there with the best. So juicy, resinous and downright tropical. No alcohol or harsh aromas to muddle the wonderful bouquet of this beer.

Flavor doesn't quite follow the aroma, but it is by no means far off. I have a sensitive palate to sweet beers, and this tip toes on the line of being too sweet. However, this bottle IS a month old and while it is still delicious, we all know IPAs get sweeter as the hops diminish with every day since bottling/canning/kegging. THAT BEING SAID...the tropical fruit plays with the sweetness and gives it a literal 'juicy' aspect. After it has sat for about 10 minutes, I get a lot of oranges, making this a literal 'Permanent Mimosa'. Very good. Just wish it was a little more resinous.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with soft carbonation and a long finish. Mouthfeel isn't syrupy or cloying in terms of the sweetness level.

Overall, this is definitely up there in the conversation for top 10 DIPAs out there. Not in my personal top 5, but certainly in my top 10. A real treat and so glad I got to try this badboy!
