look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Purchased at the brewpub, 750ml with green wax.

Amber body with a pure white head with good retention and some lacing.

Smells of tropical sweet fruits, pineapple and mango, orange puree, sweet candy.

Taste is malty with sweet tropical fruits but not overly hoppy or bitter.

Carbonation is moderate, feel is medium bodied.

Average DIPA. Nothing special, but solid.

Poured from a 750 ml green waxed bottle into a FFF teku.

A- pours a dark caramel with a 2" off-white head. Big trails and clumps of lacing remain on the glass.

S- caramel, honey, pineapple, some spice, and pine

T- sweet caramel and honey, some citrus and melon with nice pine bitterness.

M- medium body and carbonation. Light syrup feel with effervescent finish.

O- good beer. A little on the sweet side but has some citrus and pine bitterness to help balance this beer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

750 ml green waxed bottle served in a Pipeworks snifter.

A: Pours a dark golden yellow color with a white head forming on the pour. Nice retention as it slowly recedes down the glass leaving behind some sticky lace.

S: Much heavier on the malts than I was anticipating. Very bready and slightly sweet. Light grassy hops in the periphery.

T: Same as the nose. Heavier on the malts with some sweet bread flavors and a faint nuttiness. The hops are grassy and mildly citrusy.

M: Medium to light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Chalky finish.

O: An odd beer. Didn't seem like a DIPA to me. More of an imperial ESB or something along those lines. Wasn't bad, but wouldn't want to revisit in the future.
