First rated on 5/11/18; new rating w/ review based on 8/9/18 drink.

Canned on 7/18/18

Pours a murky copper-orange with a good finger and a half of soft, white head.

Aroma has big notes of raw herbaceousness, earthy hops with a blunt dank edge, mango, peach, guava, and pine compacted in a tight, bursting bouquet.

Taste brings out plenty of dank hops and bits of residual herbal notes; dank mango and peach join the fray among a bevy of earthy citrus.

Mouthfeel maintains an excellent balance between juiciness and well-bodied carbonation; these elements support one another incredibly well, and lead in to a smooth, dry finish.

Smooth dankness and nicely balanced 'green' notes make for a DIPA that hits the spot with its strong earthy tones.

Appearance – Clear amber body with just a thin ring of head.

Aroma – Pineapples and mangoes, very fruity and bright.

Taste – Grapefruit and citrus pith, with some fruity hop resins. Very bitter but not overpowering.

Mouthfeel – Good viscosity, supported the flavors.

Sampling a cellar temp 16 oz can poured into a snifter. The beer is a clear copper color with a large fluffy white head of 4 cm. The head fades to a sturdy surface layer and some clingy lattice on the sides of the glass. The aroma is hops from the moment the pop flips. I get pine sap and grapefruit notes with a bit of tropical fruit and some biscuity malt buried in the background.
First sip reveals a tingly carbonation and slightly sticky textured beer. The body is average and the beer is pretty easy to drink for 9%.
Flavor is some biscuit and light caramel malt but moves to hops right away with some grapefruit and also tropical fruit mixing and a little pine sap and rindy bitterness on the finish.
I still dont get any of the booze and find the beer almost too easy to drink for the booze level. Its a nice DIPA and Im enjoying it as I easily finish my can.
Check it out at the brewery.

Poured from can dated 9/15/2017

A: Clear orange with one finger white head that settles reasonably quickly but leaves some nice lacing.

S: Pineapple, mango, passion fruit, and tangerines mixed with floral hops notes.

T: Nice punch of tropical citrus with pineapple, mango, passion fruit with hints of grapefruit rind. Alcohol is extremely well hidden.

M: Medium body and average carbonation. Soft texture and very easy drinking.

O: Citra and mosaic hops. What’s not to like? This is an outstanding DIPA and nicely executed.

Appearance - Pours nice burnt orange color with thick soapy white head. Spotty lacing all around the glass.

Aroma - Mild tropical notes of orange, mango and papaya. The citra and mosaic hops are present, there is also a light floral aroma.

Taste - Oh yeah those citra hops shine through nice orange, mango and bitter grapefruit. I like that the high alcohol is very well hidden great flavors.

Feel - medium bodied well carbonated just a hint of bitter aftertaste and dryness.

Overall - I am super impressed how well the alcohol is hidden and the citra hops come out strong great beer.
