This pours a golden orange color with a pillowy white head that is 2 inches thick. Nice lacing as it goes down.
Nose is unlike any beer I've had to the best of my knowledge. This is more like opening a sack of….well maybe you get where I am going with this. Wow! Needless to say there is a pleasant aroma of pine, tangerine and resin.
Smooth. Medium body. Not too carbonated or bitter at first. Beautiful hop bouquet. Complex and just hits so many places. Citrus, pine and something I cannot quite pick up. This maybe a newer hop than I am not equipped to decipher yet. It is wonderful though. Some grassy characters from the malts but these play well with the hop presence. Earthy tones and a blending that is again wonderful. The 8.7% is hidden well and doesn't overpower the sense.
Ok, here comes more of the bitterness as this goes down. Pine and hop oils left to coat the tongue. Still a delicious beer. A quick glance at the hops in this and I'm guessing the Mosiac is what I'm getting that I cannot judge. Could this be the blueberry I've heard about? It is fantastic!
I've heard this replaces Hop Wallop. I'll be sad to see it go but this is a worthy replacement for sure.

Had a growler filled at Premier Gourmet this weekend....I love that place.Poured into an impy nonic a clear light to medium golden with a great looking blooming white head that left two multiple rings of lace as it settled into a frothy mass.Pine and grapefruit along with sugary sweetness in the nose,there is drunken fruit element to it.Fresh citric hops greet the taste buds that melds into a grassiness and then into a sweet dough caramel base,a sugary alcohol element is there but doesn't overpower the hops.I like it,top 5....not sure,but it kicks ass.

12oz bottle poured into Mr. Pint.
Appearance: A hazy, mostly translucent yellow with brisk bubbling action and a white head that leaves a little bit of lacing on the side of the glass as it slowly dies down.
Smell: Holy complex nose, Batman! Citrus, hops, pine, grass, grapefruit all just take their turn in blasting out for my enjoyment.
Taste: Very much reflects the nose. Nice, complex - and distinct - flavors centered around citrus, pine, grass, and hops hit pretty good.
Mouthfeel: Pretty crisp. A little bit of the pine lingers as an aftertaste.
Overall: Well, then. $9.45 for a 4 pack well spent!

4.15/5 rDev -3.3%
A: A light colored DIPA that is a deep golden beer with good clarity. The white head is quick to fade into a thin cap of soapy bubbles.
S: A strong citrus hops aroma that mostly has notes of grapefruit, pine, some pineapple and a fair amount of an herbal character. There is a light malt a sweetness and a low alcohol sweetness.
T: An aggressive hops bitterness and a very strong citrus hop flavors. The hop flavors are a lemon/lime, pine, some mango and little citrus zest. There is just enough malt for support and nothing more making for a very bitter balance. The finish is off-dry with a lingering, citrus hops flavor and bitterness. There is some herbal qualities to the hop flavor that is more apparent towards the finish.
M: A medium bodied beer with a light creaminess and a strong level of carbonation.
O: A very well crafted Double IPA that brings a ton of American citrus hops to the party. The entire focus and balance of the beer is out towards showcasing the hops.
