Poured into pint glass from bottle.
Appearance: Goldenrod body with thick, white head that slowly dissipates to a pattern of rings on the top of the beer. Lacing sticks to the sides of the glass. Great retention. Clear enough to give a good view of the carbonation bubbles that are racing to the top.
Smell: Citrusy, flowery, grapefruit, lemons, pine. Phenomenal smell.
Taste: Grapefruit, oranges, lemons, and pine throughout the entire sip. Slightest sweet flavor in the front that is dominated by a lingering bitter finish. I would go as far as saying it may be too bitter towards the end.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, refreshing. The epitome of drinkability. It's a light beer in my opinion with plenty of carbonation. An everyday beer.
Overall: Definitely in my top two DIPA's. It's an unbelievable brew that I would go to great lengths to get. If it was available, I could drink this everyday. Pliny in my right hand, Heady Topper in my left.
Serving type: bottle
