12 oz. bottle served in a FFF teku. Bottle shared by pmoney and also opened another bottle bottle two weeks later. Both equally as delicious.
A: Pours a clear amber color with a one finger height of white foam forming on the pour. Some soapy and splotchy lace is left down the glass.
S: Grapefruit and orange bursts of citrus with a nice piney undertone. A little bubblegum sweetness with sweet bread malt body.
T: Mango and orange. Lemon citrus with pineapple. A lot of tropical fruits going on. Marmalade sweetness with some light bitterness. White bread malt sweetness on the finish.
M: Medium to light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Sweet and fruity with a clean finish.
O: Delicious. So well balanced with a great mouthfeel. Fruity and sweet with a piney undertone. This is a top tier DIPA.

No bottling date that I can see.
A: Pours a cloudy straw/orange color. So cloudy it's almost white - looks almost exactly like a witbier. Tall, frothy and effervescent offwhite head. Big island of foam and lots of heavy, continuous lacing everywhere.
S: Oooh nice. Candied oranges and lemons. A little grapefruit thrown in. Spicy resinous pine. Nice hop variety. Maybe some bready malt?
T: Not as huge of a hop bomb as I was expecting from the aroma. Citrusy with grapefruit and orange, but much less so. Lots and lots and lots of spicy, piney hops everywhere. Not overly bitter, there is a substantial bready malt here backing it up. Wave of drying bitterness in the finish, along with sort of a salty, spicy pine kicking around. Hints of grapefruit and more pine in the drying, lingering aftertaste.
M: Somewhat heavy, quite bitter and dry on the back end.
O: Nice balanced but very hoppy at the same time. Big, bold hoppy flavors with a strong enough malt base to balance it out (mostly anyway). Only really get substantial bitterness in the bitter drying finish, the rest of the time it's quite well balanced.
