22 ounce bottle into signature teku glass, no bottle dating. Pours very hazy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Moderate soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big orange zest, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, pineapple, peach, mango, floral, grass, light pine, light honey, and floral earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops with a moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, orange zest, tangerine, lemon zest, pineapple, peach, mango, floral, grass, honey, light pine, and floral earthiness. Slight floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pineapple, peach, mango, floral, grass, light pine, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hop flavors; with a great bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly slick and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic DIPA as expected. Big hop flavor complexity and balance with moderate malts; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering.

Pours like grapefruit juice, which I love. Cloudy with a bunch of lovely yeasty bits floating around the glass, eventually settling onto the sides of glass near the bottom.
Smell is malt, a cool, floral - herbal note reminiscent of gin, which I love, and a woody note. Great balance and great complexity.
Taste is rich and complex. Malt, wood, herbal, hops, citrus, the whole gang is here. And playing well together. Molto bene.
Medium plus bodied, lighter carbonation. Warming and smooth, rich and delicious. I'm pissed I only got one bomber. Damn me!
