Hazy amber color with beige head. Aroma has sweet tropical fruits like tangerine, ripe peach, overripe pineapple and also sweet malt. Taste starts with sweet malt, some fruity hops, but also some nasty stale note I get with some sips. Medium body with low to medium carbonation. Overall it's not really bad but it has some off-flavors and it's also a bit boozy.

Pours a transparent amber with a half finger head of small bubbles. Smells of orange and sugary sweetness. Very light mouthfeel, plenty of carbonation, and hops on the back end. Nice and balanced, not overpowering. Would not have guessed this was 9% alcohol.

Fresh at the source, not who knows how old and malty from an undated bottle.

Very good DIPA. Tropical cherry, strawberry & Orange starburst candy and sticky dank pine hops in the back. Dry in the finish. I would definitely have this again at the source or if assured a fresh bottle.

Solid stuff.
