4.45/5 rDev -0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: Lighter shade of copper. Light haze. Forms a creamy, off-white head that reduces down to a thick, stable surface coating. Leaves some moderate lacing.
S: Aromatic and full of Citra hops. I guess no one should be surprised when I say this one is full citrus aroma. Mostly orange, with lemon to a lesser extent. Mango and tropical fruit play a role as well. Smells like candy.
T: Quite similar to the aroma. Fairly sweet, to the point of almost being candy-like with the sweetness coming from both the malts and in perception from the Citra hops. Orange, grapefruit, mango, and fruit salad, with a touch of lemon. A bit of alcoholic spice on the back end.
M: On the heavier side of medium with appropriate carbonation. Sweet, but not at all cloying. Moderate bitterness.
O: Overall, a very good beer; one of the best DIPAs I've come across recently. And typically I do not care for the sweeter DIPAs, but, for obvious reasons, this one just works.

Acquired in a trade with wesside89
A- Deep gold with orange hues. Looks dense and hazy from the bottle conditioning. Beautiful
S- Juicy Citra hops abound. Tangerine, orange, apricot, mango and a touch of honey
T- Bright flavors of the nose explode out of the gate before the bitterness sets in late. Not quite as dank as hoped it would be. Probably due to some age on this one.
M- Creamy, mid to full body. Soft on the tongue. Very little alcohol detected. Perfectly bottle conditioned DIPA
O- Really well done. Not a "wow" beer for me, but solid. Need to try again even fresher.
