Pours a day-glo orange colour, bit of cloud. Head is off-white, bit cloudy and whispy. Decent, but not amazing.

Smells nice. Sweet malt with cake batter, but plenty of West Coast hops with it too - citrus, paw-paw, touch of mango. Pleasant. Right in the sweet spot.

Taste is massively hoppy from the get-go. Not to its advantage. Sweet, fruit salad flavour, with intense apricot, sultana grapes, peach and mango. Yeah, fruity sweet and could use more citric bite. Has that hop heaviness on the back, but not really flavour, which is all just sweetness. Needs more grounding.

Smooth, bit of edge at the end, but quite drinkable and pleasant.

Could see people really enjoying this. It's really quite drinkable, but for me it just lacks edge.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottled 10/1/13 at 40 degrees into imperial pint glass
Aroma of citrus
Head large (5 cm), off white, creamy, slowly diminishing to a layer varying from 1 to 4 mm
Lacing OK, partial rings and medium islands of small to medium bubbles
Body medium orange, chill haze
Flavor begins with citrusy hoppiness which fades to a tangerine sweetness; no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, oily, lively carbonation

A quite nice DIPA at ten months old; I can only imagine how it would have been fresh. Although to hops have deteriorated some, this is still better than many of the fresh IPAs.
