4.63/5 rDev +12.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Appearance: Sunset orange/red, clean looking, 1 1/2 finger off white head good lacing. This beer is darker than most DIPA's but it's not really a straight DIPA either. I can't imagine this beer looking any better than it does for what it is.
Smell: Citrus hops all day. Clementine and a touch a grapefruit, a little pine too.
Taste: Same citrus profile as the smell with a significant bitterness. It's not overwhelming or offputting, but it's not polite or subtle either. This beer is awesome. There is a light sweetness to mellow out the all the hops.
Mouthfeel: It's medium bodied and definitely sticky.
Drinkability: I'm going to say this is probably my favorite beer. I haven't had one for a couple months, and I kind of figured I was over this after having many other more highly regarded hop and hype monsters. I poured this out and remembered why I loved it, instantly with how beautiful it looks, how wonderful it smells and how great it still tastes.

A: poured from a 16 oz can into a pint glass, red brown colored with a large foamy offwhite head that lingers leaving good lacing, clear
S: heavy on hops, earth, pine, citrus , grapefruit, breast malt sweetness, tangy and mouth watering
T: pine bitterness up front, bitter at first with a lemon quality, sweetens to honey and slight raisin flavors, hint of heavy alcohols and esters
