Picked up a 12 oz. at Amityville Superstar Beverage and drank around 50 deg. in a duvel tulip.

A- 3 finger off white and long lasting head topping an amazingly pretty copper body. Nice carbonation, bubbles rising throughout the whole drink.

S- Overwhelming hoppy pine cloud, gotta dive in deeper. Got a tiny bit citrusy lemony malty thing goin on. Meh, its good but i was kinda expectin more from all these crazy reviews.

T- Malty Hops punching you in the back of the eyes! Fadin' to more lemon tartness. The hops stick around and don't go away after more than two sips.

M- Liked the mouth the best but have no idea why. Hops burn in the back corners of your mouth and gets stuck in your sinuses. Makes it a challenge to pick up flavors after a bit but man I love it! Nice carby kind of feel, fun on your tongue. Extremely light for a Dipa, which is good. God I hate when a Dipa's disgustingly syrupy, it grosses me out after a while.

O- A fun Dipa but I don't know if I'd pick it up again. At 6 bucks a single its way to expensive for what it is. Think its a bit syched up too much.
