Poured into a Tired Hands stemmed glass. Half finger worth of soapy peach colored head on top of a hazy burnt yellow body. Head recedes to a thick coating of soapy white bubbles. Good lacing throughout.

Smell is wonderful and complex as hell. Notes of kiwi, strawberry (strawberry shortcake), bruised mango, and cat pee. Very hoppy aroma, with some subtle yet pleasant aromas. A harsher, alcoholic aroma takes over a bit in the back. Tropical fruits abound in this beer!

Taste is awesome! Very well balanced, with a fine amount of sweet malts in the forefront (honey and freshly baked bread come to mind) and a balancing hoppiness from the Amarillo and Galaxy hops. Honeydew melon, kumquats and other exotic fruits have some presence here.

Carbonation is spot on and works well with this full-bodied beer.

This is a fantastic DIPA! Seriously one of the best! It needs better head retention, but aside from that, it would be hard to beat! Just a great balance, great aroma, juicy and well rounded beer. I consider myself lucky to have been able to drink a growler of this!

Served on-draft. Very hazy pale orange body with a foamy, thick white head. Nice lacing on this one. Aromas of grass, pine, bitter hops, alcohol, and some tropical fruits. Flavor is bitter up-front, pineapple, citrus hops and finishes with a little booze.

Screw-top growler received via Growling at the Moon. Thanks for the brew, Dan!

First stein pours with a 1/9" off-white head over the slightly cloudy golden brew. Head skims promptly, with sticky lace. Aroma is tangerine citrus.

Taste starts moderately sweet, oranges in the middle quickly give way to piney bitterness through the close. Fruity bitterness lingers. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is good. I have a feeling this brew could easily sneak up on me.
