Sampled at Classic City Brewfest 2016. Pours a clear golden yellow from the bottle with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is nice citrus diesel hop profile, with a hint of caramel and pale malt behind. Taste follows, big IPA, but nicely balanced and well made.

This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a hazy semi-burnt amber color. Mild little white head quickly dissipated. Semi-sliding lacing.
The smell takes on some sweet to bitter grassy with bitter citric hop driven components. Some floral qualities involved.
The taste pretty much sums up all of the previously mentioned flavors. Dry sweet citrus to floral aftertaste. Quick dry floral sweet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Sipping to sessionable quality.
Overall, as a DIPA, it definitely works. I’d have again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Bottled 13 JAN 16. Hops are Calypso, Galaxy, Cascade, Chinook 8.4% ABV per the label, so this is a new recipe. Pours a medium thick, well retained, ivory head, with moderate lacing, over a clear, dark amber (SRM 14) body......nose is pine, citrus, primarily grapefruit, orange, tangerine, from the hops, mild toasted malts, balance to the hops......taste is moderately sweet, with light toffee/caramel tones, from the malts, heavy citrus, with orange, tangerine, grapefruit notes, pine, resin, licorice, finishing moderately bitter, balance to the hops.....mouth feel, medium body, mild alcohol, moderate carbonation with moderate acid. This is a showcase for the hops. The malts are present, but simple and subdued. The hops are definitely in the newer style of I/DIPA with loads of citrus, fruity notes in both aroma and flavor from the hops. As a result it is a bit trite although drinkable. BJCP 8/3/15/5/8
