22oz bottle poured into tulip - thanks treebs

Hazed orange pour with golden hues, topped by a creamy cap of bone white head, patchy lacing littered around the glass while drinking. Juicy, bitter, fruit-forward hops in the nose with a silky sweet lacing and toasted, grainy malts. Grapefruit, pineapple and citrus peel laps against the tongue up front. Juicy and bitter throughout with a slightly higher sweetness level. Caramel and honey, toasted bread crust. Warm, hoppy finish. Medium body, nicely carbonated, sticky and lingering on the tongue.

Super solid DIPA, it seems these guys are onto something here. Since they make so many of them, I'm hoping to try more down the line.

A-Clear amber orange, not much carbonation, one finger head that tries to leave some lacing.

S- Grass, earthy, floral notes. Some citrus as well.

T-Same as the nose, grass and earthy. The finish has some pleasant bitterness.

M-Medium bodied, crisp and some hop resins.

O-Not as good as Unicorn Galaxy but still a very enjoyable IPA.

Sampled from a 22oz bottle purchased during a recent visit to Chicago.

Golden and clear with a big white head that dissipated quickly but leaves a nice dusting. Aroma is tropical fruit, citrus and flowers with good depth. Flavor is citrus and tropical fruit with a firm bitterness and an alcohol punch. Feel is silky with a low carbonation after the initial evacuation of bubbles.

Great hops and a big punch. It's a little strong for me but very tasty.
