Really nice of Rpstevens to send me a bottle of this. I owe him.
Pours an interesting amberish orange with a lighter, golden color on the outside. Interesting. Big white frothy head.
Smells like tropical mango, pineapple, and papaya, with some grapefruit ... no real pine to it, this smells mostly sweet with a hint of orange husks. Incredible aroma. Really nails the tropical/sweet aspect, without smelling cloying.
Taste is more bitter than I expected, with fresh white and red grapefruit washing over me, a hint, just a hint of bittering pine and earth, and a muted, sweet tropical overtone. It's really nicely done. Not quite as incredible as the aroma, but an excellent, top notch DIPA.
Mouthfeel is light and refreshing; great drinkability.
Well done Alchemist. Well done.
