I guess ill be reformatting how I review beers in order to make it fun again. If you scroll back a year or so I lost interest. However, this beer out of the growler makes me re-invigorated, that and this is the third pint of it.
Beers looks like golden orange sun god on the mountain with long flowing white lacy locks that wisps in the wind.
Smells amazingly citrusy but slight piney.
Tastes with bitter bolus in your mouth sweet. Triple IPA sweet.
Most good DIPA are resiny, most good IIIpa's are so hoppy they arent citrus or piney anymore. Just sweet. This one does that.
Still a little thin too hoppy but good.
If you see it, order it.

Poured from a 12oz can best by 10/11/14 into a tulip
A: Pours a gold color with a solid 1+ finger head
S: Grain, caramel, orange and a hint of oak
T: Full of grains up front then citrus/pine come through on the finish
M: Fairly full bodied; viscous but not hot
O: Doesn't just hit you in the face with hops but they're definitely there, more on the palate than nose. Overall quite tasty and the alcohol is hidden; recommended overall

3.63/5 rDev -8.8%

12oz (best by 10/11/2014) into a tulip. Pours a clear straw color w/ a soft white head that leaves behind a thin film, like soap suds, on the glass.
Aroma is floral and a little bit cat pee-ish, maybe some onion too. I've heard references to this aroma before but only noticed it in a few beers. Hard to place but I'm not wild about it. There's some mango and other tropical aromas in here too.
Taste is likewise bready, floral and fruity with a similar taste as in the aroma. The high ABV is certainly well hidden though.
Mouthfeel is soft and delicate, probably what I like most about this beer. Almost feels like a Belgian on the palate, but with a sharp hop bitterness on the finish.
Overall, I'm not sure what to make of this. It's certainly a different DIPA but I don't think it's for me. Too fruity, maybe too malty.
