Served in a Brooklyn Brewery snifter at the Beer Bistro, Chicago, IL
A: Thick three finger bright white head that takes several minutes to fully dissipate leaving beautiful lacing. Deep golden color with slight amber hues
S: Strong floral and citrus aromas dominate with a very. very slight note of pine here and there.
T: Opens with a flood of citrus hops, orange and lemon, grapefuit, transitions into sweetness, malt, orange, and banana notes. Finishes with continued sweet citrus, light orange juice, a very subtle touch of pine, and a bit of alcohol.
M: Well-carbonated, very noticable malt backbone, fairly hefty body for a DIPA.
O: One of the fruitiest, sweetest DIPA's I've had. In fact it was a bit too fruity and sweet for me. The smell and opening of the beer was fantastic, however I kept waiting for some hop bitterness to balance out the sweet which never came. A solid DIPA that fans of sweeter, fruiter beers will love.

A: Orange/Copper, 1" head that quickly settles and leaves some decent lace. Looks inviting!
S: Wow! Much more here than I expected. Grapefruit, sweet oranges, pineapple, white grapes. Big alcohol at first whiff but that disappears shortly after. Its got some warmth though.
T The citrus and sweet tropical fruit is there but its more subdued than in the smell. The caramel comes in as well as some of the earthy/spicy notes. Its very good.
M: Light to medium body. Light carbonation. Medium oil/resin.

Poured a golden body, somewhat clear and orangish, along with two finger head and minor lace patches and a aroma that is very hoppy, citric and possible grape but mostly earthy and somewhat fresh smelling. Smooth, light to medium bodied, the hops aren't overkill in this beer but are just very hoppy and have enough caramel/bread malt to offer balance and a touch of sweetness and overall just a good sipping "DIPA".
