From 06/04/11 notes. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tulip, shared by nimbleprop. Thanks Mac.

a - Pours a hazy dark orange color with one inch of white head and light carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, oranges, fruity malts, and light pine. Mostly citrus, especially oranges; a pretty nice nose.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, especially oranges again, with some light bitterness in the taste. Also some fruit, pine, tropical fruit.

m - Medium body and moderate to high carbonation, with a little bit of bitterness to it.

o - Overall a pretty nice DIPA with a really nice, citrusy nose. Would have again sometime. (630 characters)

Picked up today at Erickson's Fine Wine in Eagle... Eggghhh... $5/22, when did Full Sail raise their prices so much... This would have been $4 or less last year.

Pours with a descent white head... okay lacing.. the brew is fairly clear orange... retention is a touch lacking, but who is complaining?

Nose is fruity with a good punch of tangerine and lemon zest.... a pretty pronounced pale malt presence seems out of whack for me... even a touch of a biscuity presence.

Flavor is nicely bittered up front and quickly melts into a great fruity hoppy element... Citra? Reminds me of a citra pale ale I had a few nights ago. I am striked by how balance this brew is... not as bracing as many DIPA's, but this is a damn fine brew right now.... Lingering fruitiness on the finish makes me think citrus spiked mango or melon.

Body is medium with the expected perfect carbonation.
