Pours a golden amber. Clear. Beige Lacey for me to finger head. Aroma! A mess of hops. Citrus fruits! Complex taste. Lemon. Oranges. Tropical over ripe fruits. High alcohol. Delicious beer.

Quick review here.

Pours with a thin head, grows slightly. Normal for this level of alcohol. Some light lacing fading into legs around the glass. Beautiful hazy gold color, copper out of direct light.

Nose is heavy, heavy fruit, primarily mangoes and a hit of citrus. Reminds me of citra and mosaic, but I don't know if mosaic was even commercially available when this recipe was developed. Maybe not even citra! Anyway, delightful nose, does not belay any alcohol notes.

Sips very bitter up front, but quickly assuaged by the aromatic hopping: hints of pine and resin complement the more dominant fruit. The malt base seems entirely to accentuate the hops: nothing overwhelming, but full enough to even the alcohol and hops.

Overall, a very big beer that's incredibly well made. Perhaps a tad thin, but this is easily the best DIPA I've had in a while.
