look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12fl oz bottle poured into my pint glass
Appearance is a very light orange/golden color with a two and a half inch slightly off white head. Great head retention with about a quarter inch staying a top of the beer. Soapy scattered lacing is clinging all over the sides of my glass.
Huge nose orgasm of citrus aromas with the likes of mango, pineapple, tangerine and grapefruit. Pine needle aromas with floral aromatics are also present behind the citrus smell along wtih caramel and bread like malts.
Upfront sweet citrus taste with tangerines and slight grapefruit. Midway is a little bit of caramel along with some mango and grains with a little yeast like flavor. Following is a toasty bread like flavor with cracker malts. Finishing is a dry slightly bitter taste.
Mouthfeel is a tad thing for a DIPA with average carbonation.
Overall I was thrilled with the aroma as it was its best feature. Upon taste I was disappointed as the citrus aroma was not that present in the taste

Pours a hazy light copper body with a small white head with excellent retention. Laces the glass beautifully. Aromas are pleasantly floral and resinous with a distant whiff of pineapple. Just a had a KAPOW! This beer fires on all cylinders. So well rounded: initially sweet with caramel and a hint of cotton candy before a big orange peel and piney hops balance them out in the middle. A tangy pineapple and bitter orange zest linger long on the finish. Medium to full bodied, as befits a beer of such potency and strength of flavor. An outstanding double IPA.
