Re-Reviewing with a 5 day old bottle.
A: Copper with an off-white head. Head retention is good leaving a fair amount of lacing.
S: Primarily pine hop aroma accompanied by a slightly smaller grapefruit aroma. A fair amount resiny hops, pineapple, and a bit of caramel sweetness. All I can think of is "fresh".
T: Large pine and bitter grapefruit upfront. The pineapple comes in a bit sour and transitions into a slight sweetness. Not overly bitter., drinks like a single IPA. Aftertaste is a resiny hop mixed with tangerines. Alcohol seems to be entirely hidden. Fresh.
M: Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Slightly dry but not quite.
O: Fresh hoppy DIPA that drinks like an IPA. Definitely a must try, meets the hype.
