4.16/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Served in a snifter. Bottle dated 06/04/13.
Appearance: Clear amber colored body with medium bubbles throughout. Head comes off thick with a hard pour with a off-white base. Looks promising.
Smell: Heavy hops, but light sometimes. Wish it was a notch more potent.
Taste: Raw pineyness, it's bitter like grapefruit and heavy hops. It's not quite the malt bomb but still very easy to love.
Mouth: Medium to heavy, very sticky. If you never had a DIPA you wouldn't be able to appreciate how smooth this gem is.
Overall: I was lucky enough to pick up the last bottle at the Beverage Barn here in East Meadow, Long Island. I had the winter version earlier this year and the summer is just as good if not better. Salud!

4.5/5 rDev +6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Serving Type - 22oz bottle
Appearance - Golden tan, mellow yellow with a killer 3 inch thick, foamy head. Tons of sticky lacing.
Smell - Nice upfront citric, piney, grapefruit hops. Orange, some lemon, mild malt backbone. Sweet added sugars, along with some spices like coriander, lemon peel.
Taste - Right on par with aroma, big amounts of citric fruits featuring pine, grapefruit and orange. A bitter kick with some minor spices add a little zest behind tangerine and mango. A nice sugary note along with a caramel malt backbone.
Mouthfeel - Sweet tropical fruits along with some sugars coat the tongue. Palate gets more citric fruits, along with the caramel backbone. Aftertaste is minor bitter, tropical fruity.
Overall - Awesome. This should be a regular release. Really flavorful, nice amounts of hops and sweet sugars to create a nice smooth drink. Alcohol is hidden well and just adds to making this really pleasurable to drink.
