look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: Copper amber, with a thick off-white head. Some lacing present.
S: Piney hops at first, also some caramel aromas. Citrus as well.
T: Medium caramel sweetness mixed with pine and grapefruit. A little toasted grain in the finish. A very nice flavored ale. Piney hops take center stage, but not so much as to throw the whole thing out of balance. Not much bitterness noticed, less than expected.
M: Medium bodied, decent carbonation.
O: Overall, this is a very nice beer. Great hops flavor with mild sweetness to balance the bitterness. Easy to drink, but not too thin feeling. I will buy more.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 7/15/2014. Pours light hazy/cloudy bright orange color with a 2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, orange peel, lemon zest, pineapple, mango, peach, papaya, apricot, light caramel, bread, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with great complexity and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of tangerine, orange peel, lemon zest, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, papaya, light caramel, bread, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, orange peel, lemon zest, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, light caramel, bread, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent DIPA. All around great complexity and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
