4/5 rDev -2.7%
Surprisingly solid DIPA.
dank citra aroma. Citrus and earthy
Tastes a bit east coast sweet plus a lot of fresh hop. Doesnt get the lime orange of citrus but so what? Tastes great.
Mouthfeel: solid. Med body, moderate carbonation. Not dry but not heavy or sticky either

4/5 rDev -2.7%
A - Almost a pure orange. Pretty clear since Flying Dog filters their beers. Decent soft white head with little lacing.
S - Smells like big, juicy tropical fruit -- peach, pineapple, mango, orange peel... There's a dank, pissy "forest floor" element too.
T - Taste brings much of the tropical fruit hinted at on the nose. Really juicy up front, with soft peach following, and a concentrated, almost caramelized/candied fruit center. Big, round and resinous, but goes down somewhat smoothly considering the huge ABV. There are some indistinct grass/pine/marijuana notes, but the overriding flavors are peach and apricot.
M - Mouthfeel is on the heavy side for an IPA, alternating between soft, peachy, fuzzy dryness and resinous, syrupy heaviness.
Overall, a really enjoyable tropical DIPA that packs a BIG punch for $13/sixer. Boozy, but much less boozy tasting than past versions highlighting other hops.
