Review from notes.

A: Pours a slightly hazy bright (golden) orange color with a small off-white head on top, about 1/2 finger in height. The cap is rather tight and sticks around for a while leaving some thin lacing on the glass.

S: Lots of tropical fruit upfront on the aroma, some orange, grapefruit, and tangerine with a surprising amount of malt coming through as caramel and a bit of brown sugar.

T: Similar to the aroma with lots of tropical fruits, pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine, maybe a bit of papaya. Again, also has a good bit of malt going on as caramel and brown sugar, a bit of toasted bread.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation, definite hop resin oil on this one.

O: Quite liked this beer, a nice, assertive DIPA from Great Lakes.

Bottle: Poured a deep amber/orangey color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of fruity hoppy notes with light citrus notes as well with some residual sugar. Taste is also dominated by fruity ester with fruity hops notes and some citrus undertones with some light residual sugar notes. Malt backbone is solid and provides a nice smooth aftertaste. Body is quite full with good carbonation, Solid rendition of the style with good effort to limit the amount of bitterness in the aftertaste.
