Thanks to my mother-in-law for buying me a case. Thanks to KAggie for shipping it to me. Pours a light amber, clear with a whispy white head. Not much lacing. Aroma of sticky citrus and vanilla. Flavor is a little strong and a little sweet. Not overly sweet. Tons of hop flavor. Nice balance between the bitter hops and sticky sweetness. Bitter finish lingers. Actually, a pretty darn good DIPA.
