Thanks to drabmuh for this one.

Beer is a slightly hazy yellow with a thin white head. The smell bring a nice tropical fruit hops aroma to the table with a little bit of bready malt in the background, but I'm not overly impressed. Flavor follows the nose - it's got a nice citrus fruit hoppiness with a light malt with a slightly bitter finish. It's not really overwhelming in any one way like a great DIPA should be. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with nice carbonation. Overall, this is a solid DIPA that I would certainly drink regularly if available to me, but in my opinion it's VERY overrated. It just doesn't compare to a lot of the other DIPAs on the Top 100 list - too simple.

32 oz. growler filled last weekend, but unopened since then, poured into a NB snifter.

A - Pours a light, pale golden. Two-finger head of tight, dense eggshell-white foam is topped with a small crown of really loose sudsy bubbles, all of which dissolves into a sheen across the surface and trails of broken lace around the sides. Held to a full-spectrum light, the beer is a bright, almost neon sunshine yellow with just a trace of lime green in it, and clear. Nice legs on the glass from the malt sugars.

S - Citrus and resin hops backed by grainy, lightly toasted malts. Nose is somewhat subdued, but in an approachable way. Pleasant.

T - Toasted malts with bits of light caramel and a touch of butterscotch are nicely balanced by citrus and pine hops that match up like two sides of a coin; they compliment each other well and are tied together with just enough room for each to be noticed on its own. The citrus hops are especially good, tasting like a bowl of oranges and red grapefruit mixed together with a splash of lemon juice. The bitterness of the pine takes over in the finish and pushes out hints of lemon drops. Not a trace of the ABV, this drinks like a regular IPA.

M - Rather fizzy, almost foamy; carbonation should be tighter. Reasonable body with good, integrated construction. Solid structure. Finish is pretty dry, with almost a pucker at the end.

O - Compared to other Double / Imperial IPAs, this one is on the tame side, but that's what makes it so drinkable. Nicely balanced. While it still features the hops, there's a good foundation from the malts that makes this a solid, tasty beer that you keep reaching for across an evening.

Cheers to Bilco for sharing this

Review from notes, 6/7/14

Appearance: Lightly hazy, honey-orange in color with some nice tangerine and gold hues - pours with a small, off-white head, fades to a few wisps of a cap, leaves some lacing

Smell: Lots of citrus, definitely juicy and definitely dank - fleshy, juicy orange and grapefruit, with some grapefruit pith - very dank with some weed, grass, and piney notes - herbal and floral citrus as well - very hoppy (obviously), simply smells bitter (a good thing)

Taste: Maybe even more aggressive than the aroma - juicy, fleshy, chewy citrus - big orange and grapefruit flesh and pith - interesting blend of dank flavors, weed, grass, pine, and hop cones - very grassy, earthy, and herbal - very interesting, if not my personal favorite for a hop profile - moderately bitter, and the pithy bitterness lingers

Mouthfeel: Medium body, light carbonation, smooth and easy to drink, some earthy dryness

Overall: A growler? Sure!

This is a solid DIPA with an impressive amount of dank, weedy, grassy, and herbal notes in addition to a solid blast of citrus. I can see why people would go nuts over this. Personally, it's novel, but not the best I've had.
