4.36/5  rDev +8.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle, with freshness date clearly labeled. The ale has a hazy tangerine colored body with a huge, frothy, off-white head that holds excellent retention & leaves all kinds of lacing on the glass. Aromas are fresh with bread, caramel, tropical, mango, pineapple. On the palate there are notes of tropical, mango, papaya, loads of caramel, bready, toasted grain, plenty of malt cuts the seemingly not-so-bitter bitterness, tremendous balance here. Mouth-feel is super creamy, medium-full body, lower carbonation. I've had this one once before and wasn't crazy over it, but I stand corrected - this is an outstanding DIPA and a must try!
