4.08/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12oz bottle poured into wine glass.

Pours a lot lighter than I expected, a light apricot. With a very thin white head. The aroma filled with lucious citrus hops, tons of grapefruit and orange. Some of that pine every bodies talking about too. Very pleasing smell.

The taste is where this one falls off the wagon for me compared to the great DIPA's of our time. It's solid, but lacks the overall direction certain other brews have. The grapefruit is very noticeable as well as the pine. It just doesn't come together for me. The feel is great, full bodied with a dry bitter finish. The price point is also way too high for what you get. To me this is the worst value in DIPA land.

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

served from bottle, slightly over a month old.

pours a hazy straw-yellow. small rocky head that dissipates and clings to side of glass.

smells of pungent hops, cannabis, pine, and tropical notes with citrus (this beer is brewed with Summit, Simcoe and Amarillo hops)

front of the tongue has a big wallop of bitterness that quickly transitions to a pungent, dank taste - the sort of typical Simcoe taste. follows with a nice sweetness, citrus and tropical notes, slightly sugary. really well balanced!

overall, this is a great DIPA. great representation of the style, and this brew is incredibly balanced between pungent bitterness and sweeter notes.
