Poured from their foil wrapped 12oz bottle...
Appearance - Pours nearly 2 fingers of yellow eggshell foam, body is a hazy vibrand yellow orange amber,
Smell - Huge citrus, grapefruit, tangerine, and lots of floral hops, touch of honey and yeast, really nice.
Taste - Wow, a perfectly balanced flavor of citrus, grapefruit, tangerine, and just huge floral hops with hints of clover and lavender. A nice drying finish of grapefruit pith and floral pollen comes in at the end.
Mouthfeel - Medium mouthfeel comes from the smoothness of this ale, there is a juiciness from the citrus, and a slight drying from the floral hops. Carb is lower side of medium and is smooth and foaming, no sharp edges here at all, but provides a nice transition to the bitter dtying nuances of the hops at the end of the quaff.
Overall - Really a nice, complex, balanced and well done DIPA. Alcohol is perfectly hidden. For those that like a DIPA with strong citrus and floral hops this is a must try, recommend!

Served on tap into a tulip glass.
A- Poured a hazy orange color with off-white soapy head with big bubbles that left webbed lacing.
S- Huge pungent grapefruit, piney, and orange citrus notes. Lots of huge juicy hop character in the aroma, very strong and aromatic.
T- Lots of sweet and juicy grapefruit, big piney hops, orange citrus, dankness, and some tropical fruit notes. Very pungent, juicy, and lots of sweetness for a DIPA, but pretty low bitterness for the style.
M-Prickly carbonation, fuller bodied, some warming, semi-dry finish, and slightly syrupy.
O- This is an intensely hoppy and enjoyable DIPA> Very concentrated hoppiness with lots of residual sweetness but not over the top.
Serving type: on-tap
