12 oz bottle (thanks mnbearsfan) into a Duvel snifter.
Pours a light yellow-gold with a smallish head that dissipates to a coating. There is some some lacing which lasts all the way through. The nose is a lemony citrus (pineapple, mango, orange) with some bready, floral and sweet undertones. Taste reveals a very sweet and thin DIPA, with orange, lemon, and pine as the dominant notes. The finish is only mildly bitter and dry and this is a little thinner than I would have expected (almost like a pilsner or pale ale). The mouthfeel is crisp, medium in body and carbonation. I liked this offering but it is not terribly complex and is a bit too thin for my preference. Still, it is a solid offering and one I would have again.

Have had a few times since landing in Houston. Most recently from a growler purchased from Premium Draught.
A: Pours a vibrant copper/orange color with a touch of haze. A two finger creamy white head rises, with good retention initially. That eventually recedes to a ring with plenty of lace.
S: Citrus, orange rind, piny hops. Some malty sweetness for balance. That is about it, I am really not getting much.
T: Well balanced with citrus, orange, and piny hops with the biscuit and sweet malts. A slightly bitter finish, but overall not much lingers. The balance is nice, but fairly simple. Not a bad thing at all.
M/D: A medium body with moderate carbonation. Actually seems a bit thin and watery for me. Well balanced, and not much alcohol presents, so this is pretty easy to put back.
Not bad at all. I will enjoy the rest of the growler, and really like the balance here. Though I feel there are better version of the style sitting on the shelves. Double Jack and Endeavor to name two.

The beer comes in an extremely dark red orange.
The aroma has a bright floral, citrus, and piney aroma that reminds me of Centennial. A huge sugary candy sweetness. A dried sugary pineapple and mango, citrus peel.
The flavor follows with tons of similarity to Hopslam. A dried pineapple note, herbal, and floral hop note with a big candy sweetness, almost like the honey in Hopslam. There’s a light floral and green forest pine that Centennial offers, as the hop notes have similarities to Bell’s Two Hearted. The finish is quite bitter of again floral with a good amount of drying. Tinges of alcohol hint at the finish.
The beer is absolutely delicious and better than Hopslam because of the light malt and more vibrant hops. This has a best by date of 4/1/14, which makes the beer almost 100 days old. I imagine that this beer is better when fresh, but that is pure conjecture.
