Look - Slight orange-ish yellow. I can see through it. Decent amount of head.

Smell - Grapefruit. Passion Fruit. Pineapple.

Taste - Tropical fruit followed by pine and a little bitterness.

Feel - Medium. Very wet up front.

Overall - A very citrusy beverage. Do the creep. I took this to a cold, rainy Dark Lord Day 2015 and few bit.

Had a small sample at a Heinen's in Cleveland. Very high ABV. Tasty though.

Poured vigorously from 32oz growler into brand new spiegelau ipa glass
A- vigorous pour with only about 1/2 finger of head, about normal carb for this abv. No lacing but a subtle ring around the glass follows with each sip. Golden yellow with no haze.
S- big grapefruit and overripe pineapple with some mango notes coming through as well. Hint of malt towards the end. Not really detecting the 10% abv.
T- tropical fruit up front with grapefruit and the overripe pineapple coming back from the nose. Then a nice hop bite without being overly bitter. Very slight malt notes on the finish with a lingering hop bite and the alcohol showing itself finally but only briefly.
M- medium bodied, smooth initially and then you feel the hop resins coat your mouth and linger for quite some time after the swallow.
O- very well done TIPA, usually a style I'm not a fan of because of malt sweetness and not enough hoppiness. This nailed it on the head for me, perfect hoppiness, little to no sweetness and the alcohol is hidden almost too well.

Consider this Bodhi's brother, this DIPA is a bit stronger and with more fruit flavor rather than pine. The smell and taste feature orange, mango, and grapefruit. Not overly sweet and with alcohol that is fairly well concealed, this does "creep" up on you. A bit more carbonation may have been better, but overall this is up there with the best DIPAs. Super flavorful.
