I had this on-tap in a taster glass at Special Brews in Lynnwood, WA.

Appearance: medium orange with plenty of haze. Attractive, if standard for the style.

Smell: candy fruitiness of pineapple, mango, peach and wonder. Love it!

Taste: large and fruity up front with peach and pineapple, then turning a little syrupy toward the end. Bitterness is surprisingly low. I like it a lot, though.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a decent-enough creaminess for the style.

Overall: a big fruity DIPA; my favorite type of the style. That aroma is just outstanding.
