look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Nice golden color. Head falls quick. Good lacing. Little ring of bubbles throughout.

Smell: Enormous aroma. Very citrusy, very tropical. Some pineapple flavors and not much malt. Outstanding aroma.

Taste: Huge tropical and citrus flavors. Very juicy. Nice pale malt structure. No toast or caramel in the way. Just big fruity citrusy goodness. Some underlying pine and mild oniony/garlic Summit-y flavors that I generally don't like but smell to work well here. Everything about this is outstanding and well-constructed. Just enough bitterness laying under the waves of hop flavor.

Mouthfeel: Well-carbed. Medium bodied. Long, bitter finish. 9.4% is well-hidden in the flavor/

Overall: I hadn't had this beer in a long time and I've been missing out. A wonderfully constructed DIPA that I'd put up against almost anything.
