Bottled on 13.01.2014.
Pours hazy orange, half finger white head. Sticky froth on the glass.
Nice pine and citrusy hops in the smell, with a hint of sweet tropical fruit too and some peach. Mango, pink grapefruit, blood oranges. Faint caramel.
Taste starts rather rough, with crisp tasty (nice sour-sweet balance) citrus (tangerines, grapefruit), getting sweeter with mango and lychee afterwards. Pine resin and hop oils are pretty dank and spicy, but caramel malts smooth things out in the middle. Green bitter finish, with a dry leafy aftertaste (not a lot of fruitiness lingering).
Low carbonation, smooth, chewy. Nicely hidden alcohol.
A decent DIPA, but doesn't really blow away. The hops are a bit muddled. Didn't really like the aftertaste, gets tobacco-like and ruins the otherwise great taste.
