look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle poured into pint glass
A- Pours a Brownish Orange with a slight haze to it, White one finger head, some lacing and retention
S- Big citrusy, floral nose, tropical fruit, pine needles
T- Juicy tropical fruit flavor up front- mango, pineapple, grapefruit, malt balance is present, piny bitterness comes through more at the end
M- Nice carbonation on the tongue, Starts out fresh and juicy and ends with a nice oily slickness to it
O- A pretty interesting Double IPA, a lot of tropical fruits then sort of shifts into a different kind of beer- more piny and hoppy

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass

Pours slightly coppery golden color with a small head and lots of carbonation. Head is off white. Smell is beautiful. It is exactly the rich, piney floral hoppy aroma that I want to fill my olfactory system. I could smell this all day, but I'll drink it instead.

Taste is surprisingly muted compared to the smell -- still quite good. Nice balance of citrusy sweetness, pine, and grapefruit rind.

Mouthfeel is light but slightly sticky. Overall, this is an excellent beer.
