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.

Bottle from Gary's
Pours a slightly hazy deep straw color with a decent sized creamy bubbly white head that slowly dissipates. Aromas of orange, earth. pine, and resin with a solid light sweet sugary maltiness to back it up. The flavor is quite sweet like the aroma suggested with sweet sugar covered oranges and apricots. The earthy pine is less prevalent in the flavor as is the bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Its got some nice flavors and I'm guessing most of the fruit flavors might be hop derived. Needs more attenuation and more bitterness.

This reveiw is based on a draft enjoyed on my birthday at Max's in Baltimore. It has an average appearance: light amber body crowned by a thin head. It offers a caramel nose and a mildy sweet molasses bite with a quick hoppy finish at the end.
Nice balance with moderate carbonation - and suprisingly smooth for a beer of this caliber. Sometime next year I gotta get up to Brooklyn and visit this place, one of America's finest craft breweries. Nuff said. Forgeddaboutit!
