Very resinous and high presence of alcohol. Hint of toffee and not so hoppy, Very long bitterness. Not the best dipa i've had

Poure from a 12 oz. bottle
A - looks like a pilsner but for the slight haze, retains and extremely sparse head
S - a good blend with light citrus hints, but I get that from most IPAs
T - pretty good for a DIPA (see my disclaimer below); the aftertase is lasting and is bitter,but wihtout an unpleasant bite
F - pretty smooth
O - As far as IPAs/DIPAs go, this one is fairly good, and it went well with lunch and my grilled reuben.

Disclaimer: I am generally not an IPA fan and don't typically order them when out; that said, I keep trying them out of curiosity and try to avoid my preferences when evaluating
