Resubmitting a rating and a review since ST changed the hop profile for 2016. Pale gold out of the bottle, very little head or lacing. Loads of citrus and floral notes on the nose, much more pungency than the previous iteration, which is a welcome change. The Simcoe obviously shines here with the extra dry-hopping, and this version seems less dry and boozy than the earlier version. Medium bodied and more drinkable than I remember the first version being. I'm really pleased with this change, and I'll be going back to this more and more.

Beer is a translucent light golden straw color. Pours a large white head with with good retention and moderate lacing. Smell hits first with an incredible smell of pine. Also get grapefruit, orange, resin, and a bit of bread.

Taste starts with a ton of pine and some resin, followed by grapefruit, orange, and lemon. Has a piney, grapefruit, lemon, bready, slighty floral, crisp finish. Mouthfeel is definitely on the light side for a DIPA, with above average carbonation. Normally I would want a heavier body for a DIPA, but this lighter body helps keep the intense piney-ness from being overwhelming, also making it a surprising refreshing 8.2% beer.
