Enjoyed on tap at mellow mushroom in Lexington, KY.
A - brought to me in a 10 oz goblet with almost no head so I can't really judge that. Color is a clear light golden hue. Lacing is superb.
S - Citrusy hops. The nose is all hops. A portly piney as well.
T - As with the nose, the hops do all the talking. Very juicy up front with citrus and tropical fruit flavors. It continues with a nice piney resin flavor that finishes bitter but not dry.
M - medium bodied with light carbonation.
O - A great regularly available DIPA. I will search for this one more. You know its a good beer when you relish the butler afterward.
Serving type: on-tap

While still better than the majority of mass-produces beer, this is a representation of the style I am not fond of. It's all hops with just a bit of malt sweetness before the hops take over.
Pine-y resins of hops comes through on the pour, with a pale wheat-straw colour giving up a decent-sized head that dissipated quickly, leaving very little lacing. The taste was as I described above - you get a malty sweetness on the tongue that quickly gives way to the 4 varieties of hops used in this brew. This BA cannot taste any hidden notes of fruits. Finish is very dry & bitter, and this lingers for quite a while on the palate. Mouthfeel is decent, a little thick & with good carbonation.
Overall, not a favourite of mine.
