Pours a clear sunflower gold, with slight orange highlights. Head is a full 3 fingers of perfectly white foam. Head retention is moderate. Leaves sticky lace all over.
Aroma is thick with pineapple. Lighter citrus and a little floral and resinous.
Taste is big hops. Sweet malt body is very well done, light but enough to prevent any harshness in the bitter character. It even hits the back of the palette during the finish. But this is really all hops. Hops up front, in the middle and a nice clean bitterness that lingers.
Medium light mouth with good amounts of carbonation. Lighter than other DIPAs I've had, very nice. But still has that oily hop character which I enjoy.
For me, what sets this DIPA apart from the rest is the malt balance (just enough) and mouthfeel (light). It's a very easy to drink DIPA.
