4.18/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Frankly, this is a little light to be an appearance-solid DIPA, in my opinion. The color I've come to expect from a DIPA is mid to dark orange, and this is fairly pale yellow. There's a bit of head off the pour, but it dissipates fairly quickly.

S - From the first crack of this beer, the smell is great. Fruits are in the forefront, with a bit of bitterness. Great smell, I don't think it gets a whole lot better than this.

T - Unfortunately, the taste isn't as great as the smell. The bitterness takes over powerfully in the taste, while the fruitiness is lacking. This is still a phenomenal tasting beer, but comparing it to the smell, it lacks a bit.

M - Mouthfeel is good, slightly syrupy and the bitterness fades at a good rate.

Overall, this beer is great. I've had it several times and I have found that if you let it sit for a while, the bitterness dies out a bit, but the fruitiness goes with it.

4.35/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured a deep clear gold with a thin and short lived white head. A little bit of lacing hangs on. The initial aroma is pure Cascade: deep and piney, but developing some malt depth as it warms and open up. The taste is equally big, with deep malts balance off of huge citrus and floral hops. It has nice solid weight to the body and is an excellent Imperial IPA.
