So much happening in this yet it's very well balanced. Start with the look. Regal white lathery head sitting on top this hazy golden beer. Nose is grapefruit, bitter and a little sweet. Taste is near perfect for a DIPA as it exhibits equal parts grapefruit, maybe mango? alcohol presence and sweet malt. Pretty full bodied with a pretty quick, dry exit. Bitterness and saccharin sweetness linger on the tongue. Very much worth all the run it gets.

$5 tulip at Mekong in Sandusky, Ohio.

Fuck me, that's a delicious DIPA. The balance and intensity of flavors is insane. Very sweet, juicy hops, coupled with some biter, dank hops, a little bit of "Hey, this is a DIPA" alcohol warmth... so tasty, so balanced, so good. DIPA's have a tendency (in my experience) to be on the bitter side or the sweet side, and this is right in the middle. So fresh and bursting and damn good. The malt sweetness and juicier hops are just enough against the drying, bitter hops... finish is clean, a little dry, a little wet... I don't even know anymore. All I know is that this is one of the best DIPAs I've ahd in quite a long while.

Golden yellow with moderate bright white head and sticky lacing.

Floral aromas of dank, sticky green, slightly skunky cannabic hops abound. This stoner bouquet is enhanced with the accompaniment of a fruity, munchie-inducing aroma of Trix cereal.

Flavors are really very close to the smell, but a little more piney and citrusy.
