Superb and intense citrusy hop aroma with a herbal touch, pine, grapefruit, mango, tangerine, orange peel. Taste is minimally bitter hoppy, excellent fruity notes of mango, peach, grapefruit, some pine, a herbal touch; long lasting finish with a sweet, spicy, minimally peppery carrot note, well hidden alcohol (except for its agency). A fruit bomb with astonishing easiness. Wow!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
33cl bottle, four weeks old. Pours hazy light orange with thin white frothy head. Aroma is out of this world: Citra at its very purest. Tangerine, mango, pineapple, passionfruit and grapefruit in abundance: wonderfully sweet, fresh, and exotic. Taste is world class: all of the tropical fruits dance on the tongue, with pithy grapefruit and waxy orange providing a perfect degree of heavy bitterness. A hint of a herbal note and some pine resin before some light biscuity Madeleine-cake malt brushes in subtly. Mouthfeel is medium/full. Hop oils coat the mouth completely. So hedonistic yet so easy drinking. No hint whatsoever of the 9.7% ABV. Bitterness is dominant and assertive, but by no means overwhelming - this is about pure hop flavour, not just palate-beating bitterness. Aftertaste is long, with orange, pithy grapefruit and mango lingering. This is a truly masterful DIPA, the best I've ever tasted for sure. Jesus, this stuff is absolutely incredible.
