look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a beautiful translucent orange, with minimum head, quickly fading.

S - Grapefruit peel and bright hops. A little floral or honey note.

T - Immediate grapefruit peel and sweet pulp, followed quickly by sweet fruity and slightly dank hops. A dry hop finish, mostly orange peel. Some biscuit and pale malts. Plenty of pine resin.

M - Medium carbonation and alcohol sting, very smooth; oil coats the back of the throat. A little alcohol warmth on the finish. Long sticky finish.

O - This is a very tasty DIPA, certainly worthy of your consideration (and seasonal enjoyment). That said, I think it's a noticeable step below the best, and doesn't really bring anything you can't get elsewhere.
