Raul been seeing it and Raul been wanting it. And guess what? Raul had it!

Malty like your gramama while cooking breakfast and hoppy like, well, nothing. This thang is overly malty like a Prussian wedding. It's cool, and it's got the hype, but not everyone subscribes to US Weekly.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - pours a pale golden yellow. A thin film of white foam rises and quickly dissipates to a ring around the edges.

S - almost entirely hops. Herbal, resin and pine are most prominent followed by notes of citrus and tropical fruits such as fleshy pink grapefruit, bitter orange peel, pineapple rings and mangos. Light bread crust malt character.

T - lightly sweet bready malt on the front. Tropical fruit notes intensify the perceived sweetness with notes of pineapple. Grapefruit rind and racy hints of lemon pith come into play in the center. Finish is long bitter and resinous.

M - light side of medium bodied. High carbonation.

O - well made ipa. This is the style is tend to prefer for my ipa/dipas. Lighter bodied with satisfying bitterness but plenty of tropical fruit flavors for balance. Good stuff.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip glass.

A: Pours a nice honey color with minimal head and almost no lacing.

S: Lots of citrus and pine. Lemon, orange, and grapefruit mixed with the earthiness of the hops.

T: All hops up front with nice citrus balanced with a nice malt backbone.

M: Medium body that coats nicely. Refreshing to drink.

O: Really nice DIPA. Will add this to my list of ones to seek out.
