Very strong but in good way, great beer to put your man pants on and get away from budlight.

Appearance - 4/5
An extremely clear orange, with minimal head. Looks appetizing

Smell - 3/5
Strong smells of hops, chocolate (yes, that's what I smell), maybe faint smells of citrus.

Taste - 3.25/5
Sweet and smooth, tastes of hops, chocolate, and honey. Nothing special about the taste, besides it being extremely smooth for a double IPA.

Mouthfeel - 3.5/5
Medium body, tastes slightly creamy, which is unique for an IPA. Carbonation is nicely balanced

Overall - 4/5
I don't know quite how to define it, but despite some of my low ratings in the various categories for this beer, I steel feel like I like it. I don't love it. But it is something I would consider getting every once in a while

Weighting: Appearance 15%, Smell 15%, Taste 35%, Mouthfeel 15%, Overall 20%

A - Pours a burnt orange / amber color with not much head to speak of other than wispy clouds that circulate the glass. Good clarity.

S - Citrus zest, floral, honey, caramel, resinous.

T - Citrus hops, some resinous notes, heavy on the sweet side - honey, warming alcohol. Finishes clean with a slight bitter after taste.

O - This is a solid DIPA, but does nothing to knock your socks off. Slightly muted hop explosion for this style which is a bit disappointing.
