12 ounce bottle into snifter, best before 10/29/2014. Pours lightly hazy deep orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with juicy citrus/tropical hop notes with moderate malt sweetness; and good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, caramel, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of resinous pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a nice crisp malt/bitterness balance and minimal cloying bitterness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice DIPA style. All around good complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

A little malty on the aroma, but a nice juicy, citrus hop burst taste. Body is solid medium and drinks well. Solid IIPA
