12 oz bottle. Dusky straw gold, a light touch of particulate suspension creates a hint of cloudiness. Clean white head is prominent and quite willing to stay for the party. Some decent lace on the glass. The nose is big and fragrant with lots pineapple and other tropical fruits, citrus. There are peppery notes of spice and alcohol heat. A bit of a lemon honey malt undercurrent. Taste is superbly balanced for such a strong brew. The light pils type body and mild honey sweetness are quickly engulfed in the blanket of hop melange. The tropical qualities really stand out at first and the body develops and unfolds into a piney progression that blossoms in a grapefruit skinned finish, with a light minty flourish that opens up the well concealed alcohol as a vaporous fusel cooling of the tongue. Feel way to light and supple for a DIPA. Smooth, lightly creamy carbonation. Quenching and refreshing feel puts you in trouble when it comes to staying sober. It just goes down like as a session ale. This is a great all around DIPA and while not Pliney it is a great, easy drinking take on the stye. Love it.
