Beautiful burnished gold and orange peel in the glass. Pungent. Nose is a lovely tropical blend of sticky papaya and guava that wafts out of the glass. The flavor is nicely sophisticated here, running from a sweet, mango fruit upfront to just enough malt to balance the massive hops here, to a dry, slightly bitter bite on the backend that cleans things up for the next sip. World class. Better than the Bot.

I got a growler from the brewery in New Haven, Connecticut.

The smell of hops is incredibly pungent. Lovely. When it hits the lips it's quite sweet. Very mild--in a very good way--when you consider the smell. Juicy as hell. A nice vegetable taste underneath that gives it a balance. So smooth, a great DIPA.

The color is a caramel brown and it is completely opaque with a limited white head.
