4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a beautiful, slightly hazy orange amber. Lots of citric hops in the aroma, but the fruity quality is a bit muted in the flavor, although there is a nice mix of citric and tropical underpinnings, and the level of hoppiness is just right. There is also a bit cedar shavings, and just a touch of cereal graininess and salt, which add to the crisp and refreshing qualities of the lengthy finish of this fine DIPA.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2013 On tap several times at Kulshan Brewing, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of pungent citrus hops, tropical fruits (mango, pineapple). Flavour of dry citrus hops galore, mangos and pineapple, and dry caramel malts. Finishes with dry tropical fruity notes and dry resinous hops. Lots of depth and perfectly well-balanced. Awesome IIPA.
