Batch #96 poured into Ballast Point tulip
Pour: Ok-an over the top (literally) four fingers off white head. This head refused to let up as it lingered forever and left just an absurd amount of lacing that almost looks like it has been left over night to dry on the glass. It will not let go of the glass. It is an absolute beautiful clear amber-copper orange with an unbelievable clarity. Fine bubbles are visible rising to the surface.
Smell: Completely tropical forward. Lemon, orange, pineapple, mango, peach, grapefruit all smelling very juicy! This beer is very enticing in the smell and has me excited to dig in. I do not get any alcohol and a bit surprising in that this is 10%.
Taste: Actually sweet and malty with a biscuit like and caramel and honey sweetness. Then like the nose and very juicy tropical fruits. Big pineapple and some orange with a touch of pine bitterness but this is balanced wonderfully by the sweetness. In the taste I do get some of the alcohol way in the back but it sits there just perfect and doesn't detract from the overall awesomeness of the taste of this beer.
Mouthfeel: Medium and pushing the higher end of this, actually. It is somewhat sticky with its sweetness but so easy drinking for a 10% beer. Light carbonation that is perfect for this beer.
Overall: I have yet to be let down by Pipeworks and their hoppy goodness. They have these styles dialed in and obviously in their wheelhouse. This to me is a grand slam for Pipeworks because I just think everything about this beer works. It helps that this bottle is ultra fresh. Well done Pipeworks! Well done!
Edit: As I continued to drink I must note the lacing on this baby is a sight to behold. Man I like this beer.

Hazy amber Orange color with a thick head with short retention, but leaving laces.
Nice aroma of sweet oranges, caramel and pine.
Caramel malty flavor with hoppy pine notes and bold on spices.
Full body with medium carbonation and tiny bubbles. Alcohol of 10% abv is well hidden.
Good DIPA, a bit too sweet, but this is the original sin of several representants of the style. It has a hop profile that is relatively not aggressive for a DIPA. Past maturity date, though.
