2.98/5  rDev -22.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

app - Pale amber color, slightly cloudy. Pours a big white head, creamy and with good retention.

smell - Sweet, malty, hoppy, alcoholic. Hop aroma disappointing.

taste - Short lived malt sweetness. Quite a bit of alcoholic character in the flavor competing with the hops. Hop flavor a bit subdued for style. Finishes dry and alcoholic, but not overly bitter. Believe the use of sugar thins out the body, but probably boosts the alcohol flavor.

MF - Medium body and carbonation, quite drying on tongue (alcohol?) Distinct alcohol warming.

Overall - Tasted more as an alcohol bomb than hop bomb for me.

4/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Large three-finger head that settles into a tight foam dome. Some streaky ring lace after every sip. The liquid is orange-amber with a mild chill haze.

Darker pale ale malt aroma. There's some alcohol to the nose as well. Low floral hop nose.

This is a surprisingly smooth IPA. This leans to the malt for the style. There's plenty alcohol warmth. The hop is spicy but not biting--this beer could stand to have a little bit more hop in it. Full bodied with a lower carbonation level.

I am surprised this is from Brazil as this is a very good DIPA.
