Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a coffee mug. Bottled 28 April 2016.

Malty, translucent orange-brown with creamy head.
It smells delightfully rich and hoppy, presaging the malty body, but with such pungent and pleasant aroma.
Almost too sweet / strong, but hey, you signed up for a DIPA didn't ya? Loads of hops, mostly of the earthy and piny variety. Endtaste is full, robust, not dry.
Overall, a solid if not differentiable or stunning DIPA. Would have again.

On tap at GSA. Pours a copper, ruddy hue with minimal frothing. Nuances of fresh pine and hops apparent in both the nose and on the tongue. Easily drinkable. Decent stab.

On draught. Domed sun gleaned copper tone. Aroma is malt biscuit and citrus with overripe pineapple. Fresh pine cone forest. Taste is biscuity with just enough malt, hop and citrusy. Mouthfeel is creamy and hop sniping in. Spider lacing sticking. I really dig the lighter side of this DIPA as most tend to be syrupy and "thick". I always say tap beats a bottle anyday. Paired this up tonight with Buzzard Bay Ma oysters. Would definitely get again. Solid pick.

Bought a bottle at the Beer Shop in East Longmeadow. The beer pours with a slightly murky , hazy orange color with a thin ring around the glass and patchy lacing. Nice aromas of piney hops with a little sweetness to it, maybe honey? Taste follows the nose with a hoppy citrus flavor with a light bitter aftertaste. I found this beer very drinkable. The mouthfeel gave it a somewhat light, but not too watery texture, especially with the heavy hop characteristic. Overall, I found this beer very enjoyable, especially thanks to its mouthfeel dimension.
