A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color with a bit of paleness and a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that gradually died down, but consistently left a short head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of piney hops are present in the nose along with some notes of citrusy hops.
T: Similar to the smell, from start to finish the taste of this beer is all about the pine, which contributes a moderate to high amount of bitterness along with some hints of citrus.
M: It feels medium-bodied, rather crisp, and quite dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very bitter and piney, which can pucker up your mouth. This might not be everyone's cup of tea.

Serving type: can

Pours a somewhat clear amber with a lot of white head and moderate carbonation evident. Citrus hops, fruity malts, alcohol, soap, perfume, and bready malts. Medium body and light bitterness.

Overall a decent DIPA.

Poured on tap at Pizza Paradiso Dupont into a sampler flight.

Dull peach amber body, thin top with a tan head leaving a little white collar. Body has some nice yellow hues to it also with opaque and glowing consistency.

Hop profile is very noticeable but controlled. Fruity peach and tropics, with a little bit of hinting pine perhaps. Seems juicy as well and inviting.

Palate matches with a good peach hop angle, but more tropical accents come out. Pineapple, maybe some mango with a very juicy sweet profile. White sugar is a bit evident mixing with a subdued malt backbone. Fussel heat in flavor and feel is a little bit evident, but luckily not too overpowering or distracting. Slightly spritzy mouthfeel but with juicy flavors that shine first and force your palate away from some of the wetness.

Overall still very enjoyable for what it is.

Poured a golden orange body with small head and lace patches. Hoppy, citric, bitter aroma but has some grapefruit sweetness underneath it. Real hoppy beer and there's balance between bitterness and sweetness and it's a clean beer with mixed citric/grapefruit tastes. Tad dry for my liking and a little light-bodied for my liking as well as the hop bitterness can be overpowering at times.
