Received in a trade from mac300. Thanks, man!
Right when i heard Bell's (one of my favorite breweries) was going to do a DIPA i had to set up a trade.

Poured into a Rogue pint glass

Appearance is good. Dark orange color with haziness. Small amount of yeast on the bottom of the glass. Barely any head or lacing.

Smell is very good. Citrus hops and semi-sweet tangarine. Images of walking through a field of hops and citrus fruits come to mind.

Taste is very good. Same as the smell but much more intense. The hop bill is extremely well done in this DIPA. Bittering and citrus hops are everywhere here. The malts give off a great semi-sweet after-taste. Well balanced yet the hops dominate, which is how a DIPA should be, imo.

Mouthfeel is very good. This beer dances over the tongue and cheeks like a thing of beauty. Carbonation is almost perfect.

Drinkability is very good, as well. I can kill at least 3 bottles in one sitting.

Overall: An amazing beer from an amazing brewery. Right up there with some of the best West Coast DIPA's. Highly recommended.
