Poured from 16oz into Snifter. Canned on June 13th 2017.

L: Hop haze honey gold, finger width head dissipates quickly leaving behind a thin ring.

S: As you would expect an entirely Citra hopped DIPA to be this smells entirely of citrus, orange, mango, grapefruit.

T: Again entirely citrus flavors as previously listed.

F: Medium body, average carbonation, slightly syrupy, dry finish.

O: This could be better. Not bad though. I don't get how this gets rated as high as it does to be honest, not complex, simple.

Heard good things. "Best by 9/30/15" Printed on the bottom right of the label.

A: Pours a slightly hazy orange. About a finger off white head. Pretty rapid dissipation, with larger bubbles condensing. Not much in the way of retention or lacing. Looks kinda mediocre.

S: Hoppy. Slightly citric and tropical. Not much malt presence in the nose. Smells very "bright", if that makes any sense.

T: Lemon, lime and orange zest on the front end. Slightly savory onion/garlic. Tropical flavors on the mid palate. Again, not overly complex but fairly "bright". Tropical spiciness on the end. Bit of alcohol warmth after the taste.

M: Feels both light on the palate and undercarbonated.

O: I'm pretty dissapointed. Perhaps I got a bad batch.

Nose has a decent amount of malt and honey like sweetness and then dank hops. After a swirl it smells like you lit your nose up to a bucket full of fresh hops. Nice creamy mouth feel and low bitterness on the finish. This one is right at about a month old so it's fresh but the malt backbone is a little over done on this for me.
