Drank this our of a tulip
Look - copper color and you can see right through it. Good head that lasted for less than 30 sec
Smell - best smelling dipa I can think of. The hop and citrus aroma is incredible.
Taste - just like the smell but slightly hopier. Has a great grapefruit mango citrus taste. More mango than anything else and it sits in your mouth for a while.
Mouthfell - slight carbonation thick for how clear it is but fairly smooth.
Overall - one of the best Great Lake beers if not my favorite. I hope to find this in tap somewhere!

Pours a semi-opaque hazy copper with a touch of fluff gracing the surface. The aroma is wonderful: juicy fruits, powerful hops, almost a buttery note lurking in the depths. Not a trace of the ABV. Taste follows the nose: bright hops, grapefruit and mango, and a wonderfully sweet yet subtle malt backbone. An excellent brew, and one I'll keep an eye out for in the future.

Pours a golden amber with a thick, off-white head that dissipates slowly. Decent lacing. Lots of tropical fruit and citrus on the nose followed by pine resin and flowery notes. Lots of pineapple, grapefruit, mango, tangerine and orange on the tongue. The pine resin and earthy hops are not as apparent, but they balance out what is almost a too sweet beer from the malt profile. Full bodied with good carbonation. Overall, this is almost perfect DIPA, only the too-sweet finish keep it from the pinnacle!
