750ml bottle received in the latest with NittanyBeerFan--thanks again Dan...split with the fiancee
a-hazy golden copper color ...two finger fluffy white head that lingered for a while...tons of lacing and spotting....bubbles are present and acceptable
s-tons of pungent grapefruit and citrus....only does a little bitterness get through the ripe fruit aroma...a little must? or grain on the nose..maybe from the rice?? who knows...
t-starts off very grapefruit and and citrus..the bitterness kicks in and rides the whole way down...the middle presents the malt balance with a little graininess and that must...finshes on a fruity citrus hop kick with some substantial bitterness on the tongue..slight alcohol is detectable
m-resiny and sticky..you can tell this is a dipa....carbonation is present and spot on....but whoa on the alcohol burn on the way down...not to detracting though....
d-we will have no problem getting through the 750...
overall another solid brew sent my way from Dan....my first from Flying Fish and i would seek this out again although i dont think the wild rice really adds anything...

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
