Thanks to Aaron for sharing, quick review from notes.

Bright saturated orange, compact head of fluffy white foam that sticks around for the duration of the glass, leaving behind flecks of spotty lace all around the edges. High clarity level with rising carb trails visible.

Aroma was fresh and fairly pungent, green grass and light citrusy orange hop notes.

Taste was moderately bitter, clean and lightly malty in the middle with some resiny citrus up front. Drying finish with a lingering ample bitterness. Feel was light to medium, fairly easy to drink. A good DIPA, maybe not their all-time best but it's pretty solid.

Appearance: Poured with about half a finger of head which dissipated quickly to only the edges of the glass. Light orange color which is clear and transparent. Light sticky lacing left behind at each level. Low active carbonation for the style.

Smell: Potent pine hop tones mesh well with soft fruits. Fruits continue to roll into the body bringing waves of grapefruit, mangos, and tangerines. Caramelized sweet malt backbone really pulls the aroma together and takes it to the next level.

Taste: Soft fruits of kiwis, pineapple, and mangos hit the palate first. Tropical airy fruits continue to open up into the body. Toward the back end a bitter pine hop profile picks up considerably. That pine lingers into the finish and wins out over what is left of the fruit hop profile.

Mouthfeel: Drinkability is top notch for the style. Carbonation mixed with uber freshness makes for a soft, airy hop profile on the palate.

Overall: This is some well done DIPA right here. I was told the hops are Citra and Centennial or Citra and Cascade. I would lean toward the second of those options, but either way if you love your fruity bright hops this is a brew for you.
