Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Duvel tulip. Slightly hazy yellow/orange body. Two finger off-white head that fades to a nice cap fairly quickly with bit of lacing.

The first aroma is tropical but it fades to a more pine - grassy note. Light amount of sweet malt aroma.

The flavor is very pine hop forward, opposite of my experience with the aroma. Sweet finish that features the tropical hop and malt flavors.

Medium thickness in the mouthfeel with only a slight notice of the alcohol. Rock solid DIPA that I'm glad to have finally tasted.
