Thanks to wethorseblanket for sharing this one at jmgrub's tasting.

Drink before 2/23/14.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with huge citrus fruit and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a fantastic citrus forward hop presence that makes this one a treat to drink.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a hazy honey color with a reasonably impressive head that leaves some dots and dashes of lace behind

Smell: Mango, pineapple, orange and grapefruit

Taste: The malts provide a neutral, slightly biscuity platform upon which the hops can perform and perform they do, bringing a range of tropical and citrus flavors; very clean finish with nothing distracting from the beguiling hop flavors

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate but lively carbonation

Overall: Caught this one right in advance of the 2/23 "Drink before" date and I am glad I did as I really like my DIPAs to be crisp and clean

Thanks, lincolnbeard, for the opportunity

Clear golden color. White head. On tap. Side by side with juice box and this is crap compared to it.

Bitter and sticky. Resiny. Where is the citra? Grassy and floral.

Not sure how or why this one is rated so high. Tough to drink a lot.
