look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Peachy-caramel color with a frothy eggshell colored head with good retention and pretty good lacing.

Brilliant nose which actually smells pretty similar to Citra DIPA (my favorite DIPA). Beautiful mild citrus, pineapple and sweet floral hop notes with a nice mildly sweet maltiness.

Flavor is just exceptional as well with fantastic balance. Again like the nose there is an excellent hop character with wonderful floral, light pine and citrus, pineapple, peach and mango notes and a perfect malt balance.

Mouthfeel is light, fresh and fairly crisp and lively with med-high carbonation.

Overall I was blown away by this random pick up. This is now my favorite IPA just beating out Just Outstanding IPA. This has amazing hops character through and through and deserves to be ranked and hyped up there with RR, Alpine and Kerns big IPAs. I absolutely recommend picking up one of these.
