look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bought a case of 12oz bottles at Bella Vista in Philly for about $45. Poured into an imperial pint glass.

Appearance (4): Slightly cloudy dark orange color. A finger of off-white head recedes to a thick ring around the outside of the glass and a thin layer of small and medium sized bubbles. The head is maintained but there is not much lacing.

Aroma (4.5): Absolutely incredible bouquet of floral and fruity hops. Pineapple, grapefruit, and orange rind. There is a faint sweet booziness with a hint of caramel from the crystal malts.

Taste (4.5): The taste follows the aroma but not quite as potent. Slightly sweet floral hops up front, with bright fruit flavors like grapefruit and mango. An very orangey middle gives way to strong pine flavors in the finish. The slightly sweet caramel flavors also emerge in the finish, but are still dominated by the bitter, slightly resinous floral hops. Speaking of bitterness, it is slightly perceptible but smooth. It balances out the slight sweetness well without being overpowering. There is great harmony here despite the huge tropical fruit flavors.

Mouthfeel (4): Medium to high carbonation for the style and a somewhat prickly mouthfeel. Not overly carbonated but lively which plays well with the fruit flavors. The bitterness and especially the floral hops linger a bit and coat the mouth.

Drinkability (4.5): This is incredibly drinkable for nearly being a DIPA. The huge flavors are still palatable in big gulps as there is little apparent ethanol. I have been drinking a lot of this due to having a whole case of best-when-fresh IPA, but still feel guilty like I should be savoring it. I'll be looking to try this on draft ASAP.
