look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - pours a slightly hazed peachy gold, with lots of stuff, tiny tiny stuff, in suspension. A thin head with some speckled and sheeted lacing styles.

Aroma - still working with an under-the-weather sniffer, I do get some good pine and grapefruit though.

Taste - a quick caramel base followed by a wave of very orangey citrus. Very syrupy and candylike is the orange flavor. Full on bitterness now, the grapefruit zest and pine hitting full force and prickly. The swallow is a quick drying, some abv heat, and intensifying bitterness, a touch medicinal but pulling back mercifully before going too far that way. The finish does have more of a mediciney aspect than anything else, but there is still some sharp citrus present.

Mouthfeel - good big body that can stand up to the carbonation level.

Drinkability - not my favorite DIPA, but I'll be interested to see how the other one cellars.
