Sampled at Lucky Baldwin's IPA festival, June 2007
The beer is mostly clear, with a reddish hued, copper color. It is topped by a barely one-finger thick, light tan colored creamed froth for a head. The smell is quite sweet and fruity; notes of tropical fruit, candied orange peel, melon, lychee, tangelo, mandarin orange syrup all jump from the glass and are even noticeable as it just sits in wait on the table in front of me.
The flavor is not nearly as sweet as the aroma suggests, but that exotic, smooth fruitiness still plays a big role in the flavor. Actually, this beer is very light bodied, even for a west coast DIPA. A nice, bracing bitterness runs throughout the beer and it becomes increasingly bitter and even a bit astringent even after the beer has left my mouth. Underneath the hop onslaught there is a dry, fresh ground, malt character that is sort of biscuit-like with some soda-cracker notes noticeable, but only at times. Otherwise this beer is purely hop driven, there is even some menthol and even mint-like flavors from the hops too.
This has a very tropical fruit driven hop character and it is very drinkable. It is quite interesting and I am not quite sure what to think of its über-fruitiness, bit I do like it in the end. Actually some more malt and even a touch more body would amplify the hop character a bit to make this even more over the top.

Sampled and enjoyed at Lucky Baldwin's IPA fest in Pasadena, CA.
Poured a clear golden/orange with a small white head that disappears very quickly to a white ring.
Fresh floral nose with just a hint of the malt sweetness. Light on the citrus peel aromas and lightly touched with pine oil.
Very little malt sugar sweetness for a DIPA..more in the realm of an IPA. Beginning to end the tongue experiences citrus hops...not overly stron or bitter...light citrus hops with more of an orange and lemon fruit character than grapefruit and citrus peel.
Very drinkable...maybe too much so. Unlike most DIPA's this one dries and quenches leaving you wanting just another sip.
