Deep golden hue, clear as a bell under a foamy beige head that leaves a really nice full curtain of equally foamy , sticky lacing. Nose is immediately sweet with a secondary wave of pineapple and just a hint of veggie. Taste is full of grapefruit peel (got that from another review, but it's actually pretty nailed) and alcohol heat. Finally, the feel. It's just incredibly creamy, not like any DIPA I've had before. Guess it takes the edge off the heat. After taste is alcohol bitter and not too much else. Finish isn't as nearly dry as the taste would have suggested.

Dated 12/12/17 on the 12 oz. can

Copper, clear appearance once chill haze lifts. Barely 1 cm head after an active pour. Full ring of carbonation and islands of bubbles on the surface. Curtain lacing.
Prominent citrus and yeasty scents upon cracking the can. Tangerine, pine, light apricot, molasses.
Well-balanced hop and malt combination. Pine, grapefruit pith, pineapple, caramel, light nectarine.
Full bodied, no alcohol tingle, lasting carbonation. Lush first sensation with a bitter finish on the back of the tongue.
Still a favorite IIPA, withstands changes in taste and fashion.

Pours a deep amber, coppery coloration. Smells quite intensly of caramel, biscuity malt, tropical/citrus fruits: mango, passion fruit, grapefruit, orange, and pine, with just the slightest hint of booze. Taste follows the nose, with a quite malt-forward taste and lots of resinous pine and bitterness, supplemented by notes of tropical and citrus fruits: mango, passion fruit, grapefruit orange. A little boozy, but really not too bad. This is a total pine bomb, quite resinous and bitter, but nicely balanced with a solid caramel, biscuity malt backbone and rich fruit notes. Loved it even though the can was slightly damaged, which caused the beer to turn a little flat. I might have rated it even higher otherwise. It's also why I'm not mentioning the head or mouthfeel.

A-a clear dark amber color with a thin layer of white head

S-caramel, some tropical fruits, and a bit of pine

T-caramel malt back bone with pine and tropical fruits

M-medium body and crisp carbonation

Overall a very malty DIPA but still enough pine bitterness so it is not overwhelming

Appearance - Pours semi transparent golden color with thick soapy head.

Aroma - Lots of tropical fruit aromas, orange, pineapple and grapefruit. Seems to have a nice malt/bready aroma at the back end along with a touch of pine resin.

Taste - The tropical flavors are stronger than the nose let on. Lot of mango, pineapple, orange and grapefruit. nice caramel and malt flavors as well. Bitter orange peel finish. Would not know this is 9.7% from the flavor.

Feel - Medium bodied well carbonated slightly dry finish and no sign of the alcohol which is impressive.

Overall - An excellent DIPA, great tropical flavors with a touch of malts. nice touch of bitterness.
