look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a snifter.

Appearance
Brilliant orangey gold with two fingers of tight laced head. Mod-heady carbonation. Clarity is good with a slight chill haze. A healthy layer of lacing coats the glass.

Nose
A lot of grapefruit, some papaya, light notes of toffee and caramel, pine and a hint of mint.

Taste
Upfront – Caramel, pine, lemon juice, papaya
Mid-palate – Grapefruit pith, drops of toffee
Finish – Grapefruit zest, resinous pine needles, lemon zest

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, slick and sticky.

Overall
Moderately heavy bitterness reliant on notes of grapefruit and pine. The malt bill seems to be tilted towards toffee notes rather than caramel. Decent drinkability. Not necessarily my favorite flavors in a DIPA, but overall a solid brew.
