Served on-tap at Great Lakes Brewing in Cleveland, OH

A: Pours a hazy deep golden orange in color with some moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some bright orange highlights. The beer has a finger and a half tall dense foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a thin film in the center of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of tropical/pineapple/mango and citrus/grapefruit hops over the top of light to moderate caramel malts with some sweetness.

T: Upfront there are some light to moderate flavors of caramel malts with just a touch more sweetness than I expected but still in a positive way. Following the malts, there is a moderate to strong flavor of hops with tropical/pineapple/mango leading the way then citrus/grapefruit a little later. Light amounts of spiciness, almost like a white pepper and coriander. Moderate amounts of bitterness which linger in such an enjoyable fashion.

M: Just shy of full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slick upfront and kind of sticky towards the finish. Light hints of alcohol warmth and dryness in the finish.

O: As a fan of DIPAs, I was pleased with this selection when visiting Great Lakes Brewing and enjoyed this beer quite a lot. The smell of this beer hit on a lot of the characteristics that I find pleasing in a DIPA. I enjoyed this one somewhat slowly and was glad that I did - I might have to grab another one of these before I leave the Cleveland area.
