Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a hazy gold color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that had a decent lace after dissipation. The aroma had some citrus sweet and bitter components, smooth sweet tropical glossing, clean malt, some bitter pine and a light floral pillowy smooth hoppiness. The flavor was bittersweet and pulling the tropical and citrus tastes into the blend pretty nice. Aftertaste blended well between the malts and hops pretty clean. Finish was just a tad sticky but acceptable. The palate was about medium bodied with a good sipping structure to it. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt good. Overall, pretty good DIPA that I could come back to if given the chance.

Honey color, VERY white head. The nose is HEAVY in hops and in the taste. Very smooth beer that does not indicate the weight of the ABV. This is a great IIPA.

A gift from @SomethingClever – thanks Dave!
Bottled 4/17/17. Stored at 42 degrees. Served at 42 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter.
Aroma – citrus – mostly grapefruit with some piney notes.
Head large (Maximum 6.8 cm, aggressive pour), white, low density froth, average retention, diminishing to an irregular two to five mm ring with widely scattered lacing about the glass. A rocky partial layer is present.
Lacing – fair. Initial long wisps of lacing as the head retracts followed by wide partial rings of tiny to small bubbles as the beer level drops.
Body – medium yellow, clear.
Flavor – begins moderately bitter with grapefruit flavors. As it warms, a little malt comes through. (Allowing it to warm in my mouth banishes the grapefruit and it becomes a weak malt drink, so not a good idea.) Aftertaste is bitter with a good hang time.
Palate – medium, watery, lively carbonation.

A very drinkable DIPA that won’t destroy your taste buds. This one was fresh – I could easily drink a bunch of them.

Appearance 4, Aroma 4.25, Flavor 4.25, Palate 4, Overall 4.25.
