Thanks to Joey for sharing this one at La Bella on 9/15/09.

Pours a very, and I mean very clear pale yellow with an egg-shell white color inch of foam.

Citrus fruit salad, mango, papaya, and caramel malt on first encounter. A bit grassy at times. The grapefruit starts to shine through with some sweat orange, which makes me think of Simcoe. A decent amount of tangerine as well. Very nice aroma over all, hardly any alcohol detected.

Flavorful hop mixture that follows the aroma. Orange, pink grapefruit, papaya, mango, caramel, and a bit of light toast rush the palate on the first sip. Low bitterness for a DIPA but quite clean, just a tad too sweet in the finish than I would have liked, otherwise I would have scored it higher because the hop flavors are quite good.

Very nice moderate to high carbonation, creamy on the palate, smooth in the finish and easy to drink. Very tasty beer, not overly impress but I wouldn't mind having it again if offered.
