A: Dark copper orange with off white head. Retention is good, some lacing.

S: Biggest scent I'm getting is pineapple and pine needles. Sweet tangerines.

T: Start off with a jab of pineapple bitterness. Orange peel and sweet malts that linger for a while. Ends with a drying pine cone flavor.

M: Medium-full mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Sticky and drying.

O: Sweet and hoppy IPA. Very tasty. Nice alcohol kick.

"Batch #17, 2013" printed on the label of the bomber. Pours a slightly hazy amber-copper color with a 3 finger, cream colored head. Good retention and moderate patches of lace.

Smell is a lot of sweet, pitted fruit...strawberries, apricot, with a nice honeydew melon and caramel malt backbone.

Mostly sweet in the front and middle of the tongue, with sweet, floral hops accented by apricot, melon, and caramel malt before finishing with a some slightly bitter, earthy hops and a little heat.

Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. The 10% abv is very well hidden. Dry finish.

My first time with this one, and I can see why it's so popular. A little on the sweet side, but a nice hop profile and the alcohol is barely noticeable. It's no Heady Topper, but a super tasty DIPA that's definitely worth the $8.99 price tag.
