A - pale gold with a nice finger of soft silky head. Good wispy lace retention.
S - surprisingly earthy with grassy and lemon notes. Also a hint of peach. Not the dank citrus bomb you would expect.
T - taste brings lemon, orange and grapefruit, but not in a sharp or aggressive way. Soft touches of mango and peach also follow. All of this against a grassy, herbal backdrop. Nice bready caramel malt center. Dry floral finish.
M - mouthfeel is soft and dry almost more like a Belgian blonde or saison than an IPA.
Overall, nicely restrained, with a lot of nuanced flavors. Doesn't smack you in the face like a lot of DIPAs. It's strangely reminiscent of some sort of Ocean Spray cran-peach-guava juice. Quite tasty and drinkable.

Pours a goldish-orange with a big white foam head that dissipates quickly. A small amount of lacing around the edges.
Lots of citrus hops in the aroma. Bursting with grapefruit, lemon, and orange. A little bit of sweetness going along with the cirrus. Nose finishes up with a burst of pine that is very strong.
The taste follows the nose. Lots of hops right up front, followed by the same bursting grapefruit and a hint of the lemon, with a touch of mango and possibly peach. A little bit of bitterness in the finish. Piney resin comes with the aftertaste. For such a hoppy beer, this is shockingly easy to drink.
Medium bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. The pine causes a bit of a resinous quality, making it a bit sticky going down.
Overall, this is a fantastic DIPA, once of my favorites so far. Despite the hoppiness, it is incredibly easy to drink, which could make it dangerous.
