22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; release #83, bottled 12/2/2013. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, pineapple, peach, floral, grass, light pine, bread, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of citrus/tropical hops with a fair amount of malt balance; and good strength. Taste of tangerine, grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, pineapple, citrus rind, light peach, pine, floral, grass, bread, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of crisp citrus rind/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, orange/lemon zest, citrus rind, light peach, pine, floral, grass, bread, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops with light-moderate malt sweetness; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and very sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice DIPA. All around good complexity of citrus/tropical hops with light-moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
