look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A: crystal clear; nice fluffy white head that dissipated quickly; left a ring around the rim of the glass;

S: If there is a heaven, and if I'm lucky, this is what it will smell like. A little sweet; piney, citrus in the background; there's no mistaking this for anything but a DIPA.

T: Crisp; balanced; then the hops explode - piney, then citrus through the finish; bitterness builds and lingers.

M: medium bodied; a little high on the carbonation; you know the ABV is there, but a really easy beer to drink;

O: One of my favorites; nicely balanced; a good representation of the style;

Serving type: on-tap
