Ok, one of my first DIPAs. The color is a hazy orange with half a centimeter of white head after the inch I got died down. Little lacing so far but it seems like it might, the retention is nice. And for the smell...Holy shite...Grapefruit, cherries and something else that's smells strong but I can't quite put my finger on it, Kind of like orangeade or orange juice. By far one of the most unique and sweetest smelling beers I've had the pleasure to whiff. Very little floral aroma for this style it seems, but I love that.

Taste contains a sticky sweetness that first reminds me of a kind of tart grapefruit juice with notes of floral hops that didn't come through in the smell as much. The presence of citrus flavors in this is amazing to me. The presence of cherries and orange juice make the initial hit of flavor so good. The taste of grapefruit and floral hops make up the aftertaste, meaning (to me at least) that the sweetness avoids the after taste somewhat, which is hardly unsetting. The malt profile is buried beneath all the flavorful hops. The mouth feel is a little sticky but good at delivering the flavor. This is my favorite DIPA so far and makes me quite excited to try other varieties.
