Big thanks to alcstradamus for splitting this one at our tasting.

64oz growler poured into Chimay chalice.

A- Pours a nice apricot that has a good amount of haze to it. Minimal head but leaves a little bit of soapy lacing on the side of the glass.

S- Big bursts of hops, pine and citrus. Lots of tropical fruit. One of the more aromatic DIPA's I have run across. A little bit of a grassy note on the back end.

T- A lot of citrus and pineapple. A nice bitterness and a little bit of grass. A touch of sweetness comes in at the end and maybe even a little bit of honey to round it out.

M- Medium bodied with a very nice hop bite. Good carbonation and just a tad dry on the finish. Hop oil just coats the tongue.

D- The flavor never gets overpowering. This is a top notch DIPA. Great flavors and not too heavy makes this one great beer.
