Well balanced very floral nose. Strong hop profile throughout. Bitterness is nicely balanced by a rich but not overpowering malt presence.

The nose gives huge amounts of orangey malt with a touch of grapefruit.
The color is light amber and hazy with bubbles and ínummiesí aka sediment.
Medium sweetness leads while the stealthy bitterness attacks like a grapefruit pith ninja in the mid palate,
The body is deceptively full. The ascorbic character disguises the boozy weight of this ale until you have had a few mouthfuls. Plenty of bubbles keep the sediment moving around the glass. The finish is medium length and kind of clean.
Overall this is a great beer, if not a little pricey. Itís limited release window and distribution radius make it a much sought after beer. Definitely worth a try if you can get your hands on one.

Rcvd in trade. Two cans.
This was poured into a pint glass and a snifter. There was barely any difference between the two glasses.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy orange to brown color with a decent one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Once the head died down, the lacing wove around the glass in a nice speckled sort of fashion.
The smell had a nice blend of sweet citrus to sweet sharp freshly cut pine and it came through in a strong aromatic way allowing a decent sweet maltiness to come out as it warmed.
The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors and added a nice sweet maltiness coating my taste buds.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there. The normal harshness of an AIPA was there assaulting my tongue very good.
Overall, what a great beer all around. Well worthy of having again.

Rarely do I rate a beer 5/5 but this comes very close: pours a clear golden color with white head. Pine, citrus, floral notes, resin, and some spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with bite. Very well done DIPA.
