This is the epitome of a DIPA. Deep and luscious citrus that is probably the best expression of Citra hops that I've had. But what really sets this one apart is its luxurious creaminess. The mouthfeel is just perfect.

Tastes like candied grapefruit/pineapple. Just so smooth and intoxicating. Where's the double IPA alcohol? so smooth and balanced, one of the best DIPAs out there, everybody knows this but it is definitely worthy of any and all hype. Juicy as hell and still has that perfect bitter bite at the end to fulfill all IPA desires. damn son! This is absolutely in my tap list in heaven.

Look is amazing, hazy with a fluffy white head. Almost seems to glow from inside.
Smell is ok. Getting a little "cat pee" from the citra
Taste is above average but not spectacular or transcendent or majestic.
Mouthfeel is average.
Overall I find myself searching for what makes this such a highly rated beer by so many people. Doesn't live up to the hype for me.
