look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
12 oz bottle with a best by date of... nothing.Why do breweries do this? pet peeve. Anyhow, this was recommended to me by a guy at Total Wine.
Appearance: Pours a surprisingly pale and hazy traw yellow. Quite thin white head that fades to a film. Not much going on as far as lacing.
Aroma: Lemon and citrus. Tropical, mango, hints of pine. Hops all the way. Very fresh
Taste: Bright lemony citrus. A little too much on the sweet side. Reminds me of lemon meringue pie. Tons of tropical fruity juicy hops underlying hints of pine towards the end. Some grainy flavors also present, I assume, from the rice.
Mouthfeel: 8.2%? You'd never know. Extremely light and easy drinking for a double... hell, it's light for a regular IPA. Juicy hops throughout give a nice juicy and bitter finish. Lot's of wet and fresh flavors here. Carbonation is average.
Decent recommendation indeed. Not sure that I would seek out again. but would definitely drink one if I came across it on draft somewhere.

You get a finger of bone white foam, the head has a fairly dense weave but has so-so retention, the lacing comes in broad sheets which slowly slide down the glass side. Clean, pure golden color, not especially vivid but bright and shiny, the bubbles are fat and dispersed, slowly rising to the surface. Powerful nose that explodes out of the glass with a sweet mélange of tangelo and pink grapefruit citrus, very floral, pine sap and honey, underneath is the stiffening presence of pretzel dough and salt, somewhat chocolaty, the nectarine, peach, pineapple, papaya fruit persists quite well, gregariously rich. Full-bodied, thick and close to fluffy, pushes across the palate like a rug unfolding. The carbonation has some punch yet no way can it clean up the underlying sweetness of all that grapefruit, tangerine, lime citrus as well as peach, apricot, mango, pineapple fruit. No noticeable herbaceous edge, perhaps a slight minerality and it may be that the rice contributes to a drier finish and overall smoothness. Alcohol managed well. Not particularly complex nor challenging, however, if you enjoy a sweeter and softer style of IPA then this is pretty much a slam dunk.

Had on tap on 1/9/14 at Lures
A-Pours a cloudy pale orange color with a one finger head. Decent lacing.
S-Nose of citrus and floral hops, honey malt, and light cheese.
T-Taste is of pine, sweet caramel malts, some fruit and some resin. Not unpleasant, but understated.
M-Mouthfeel has medium bodied and a bit sticky. Finishes more to the sweet side of bittersweet, with the caramel and the sweet fruits overwhelming the citrus.
O-Overall a great DIPA the rice I think is a nice ingredient
Serving type: on-tap
