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

Appearance:
The head pours very vigorously and creamy as well as white. A lot of lacing is left. The beer itself is a dark amber with a hint of brown but clear.

Smell:
The citra hops are present and mix well with the malts. I also get bits of tropical fruits such as mango and possibly pear.

Taste:
The citra hops certainly come out and are dominant but the sweet caramel malts balance it out. I also get hints of what appears to be mint and tropical fruits as well. The Belgian yeast also comes out very well to balance out the strong hop flavor.

Mouthfeel:
Biting carbonation and medium bodied. Very smooth. The beer feels fairly thick.

Overall:
A fairly good DIPA and one that I plan to come back to when I can.
