Thick head, good retention. Clear copper -- no haze.

Great mouthfeel.

A little heavy for me. (Maybe not a fair complaint of a DIPA?)

Fairly bitter, balanced with a fair bit of malt sweetness. In fact, too much malt sweetness.

L: pours gold with finger and a half finger of off white head
S: strong pine, orange, grapefruit, and tropical fruits
T: pine, orange, malt sweetness, mango, and lingering mango bitterness
M: fairly crisp, but not exactly light
O: tasty, very unique with a lot of tropical fruit. It's not as much my style, but still easy to appreciate the level of craftsmanship

Yeah, this is a very good effort.

Pretty decent balance despite the 10% ABV. Pretty full-bodied, not as dry finish as you might expect. Could use more citrus and less malt.

Would gladly drink any day.
