Wow, less talked about than deserved. I'd give it a review but it's technically 2 weeks past its best by date so maybe next year I can get another.

Pours a beautiful deep amber with a small head that lingers for minimal lacing. Smells and flavors of tropical fruits, citrus and hint of pine. Malt is well balanced and there is a noticeable bite from the alcohol. Overall a very good DIPA.
