A- pours a hazy yellow with hints of orange. A maybe half an inch head with almost no lacing
S- citrus bomb with grapefruit, orange, tropical fruits and a little sweetness from malt
T- taste follows the aroma. Lots of grapefruit, orange and tropical fruit. There's some caramel sweetness fom the malt. A bit of pine flavor on the very back.
M- mouthfeel is medium with a long, dry, highly carbonated finish
O- really wonderful DIPA

Batch 48, bottled 10/24/12
A - Pours clear slightly burnt orange with one finger of off-white head. Head has good retention and leaves some spotty lacing.
S - Big citrus hops aroma, with a lot of grapefruit, and some orange as well. Some pine hops. Malt aroma is pretty mild, with a bready aspect. Pretty standard DIPA aroma, but the citrus presence is very nice.
T - As big as the citrus aroma was, the citrus taste is much bigger, in a great way. Lots of grapefruit zest, some juicy orange pulp and a bit of tangerine. Taste also has some nice pine and grassy hops. Nice earthy bitterness. This is a really fresh bottle, and the malt component is a footnote, but does provide a bit of depth.
M - Mouthfeel is very smooth for such a hoppy beer. The malts provide a nice amount of body, though the finish has an intense lingering earthy bitterness. Very nice.
O - This is an excellent DIPA. The body is big, but not sweet, and the hops provide a lot of different flavors, not just intense bitterness. The citrus is very nice. Look forward to having this again.

Acquired via trade
Unfiltered golden orange with a large, moonscape near-white head that lasts and lasts, eventually leaving some irregular lacing down the glass.
A sweet and somewhat simple aroma, and probably this beer's weak spot, if it has one. There's mild citrus and simple syrup aromas combining pleasantly.
Moderately bitter, decent pine and citrus presence, orange syrup, and just a hint of alcohol presence.
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Lingering citrus flavor. Very nice.
Very nice, though it was better at colder temperatures.
