look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

bottle into snifter

a: mildly hazy, somewhat transparent bright orange. aggressive pour yields about a finger of head. nice!

s: very pungent sweet orange and grapefruit in the front. subdued pineapple, pine, and lemon to follow. i'm also getting the onion/garlic note thing but i don't find it too offensive. really great aroma

t: follows the nose. tons of grapefruit and orange, and maybe even a bit of mango? not getting a lot of malt backbone here - i'd prefer a bit more to balance the sharp, but not off-putting bitterness that enters mid-way through each sip

m: medium-bodied with good carbonation. slightly oily

o: a bit below my expectations but still a great brew.

Bought a single at Little's Liquor store. Poured into a snifter.

A&S: Semi-lively transparent pumpkin orange colored beer. Head is initially about a half a finger of white head, but dies quickly. Even with it's lack of much head it still leaves a decent amount of head. Very tropical in the aroma: pineapple, mango, and hints of grapefruit. More sweet sugary tones than bitterness, but it's still a nice bitterness.

T&M: Extremely well balanced between sweet and bitter. Upfront: sweet sugar tones paired with tropical hops and some pine/resin thrown in there. Hints of some peppery spice. The finish adds a pretty decent punch of bitterness, but not overwhelming or dry. Medium to high body, low side of carbonation, very smooth.

Overall: I'm very impressed. Checked the rating after reviewing it and it lives up to the hype. Highly recommend to anyone. On par with the best of the style

Very nice clear, golden colored beer with a very beautiful head and really good lacing along the entire glass. Smell was pleasant and wonderful with hints of what I would describe as almost leaves of a lemongrass plant. Taste is truly fantastic and I was unsure if I would like I would enjoy this DIPA since I've been let down before by highly raved about brews. Clean, crisp, medium-bodied mouthfeel and very easy to drink. Overall the aroma of the beer did not match the taste but for me this made for a wonderful beer. Great DIPA that I can't wait to get my hands on again!
