4.47/5 rDev +2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A- Poured from the can with 1 finger of offwhite foam, which slowly receded to a haze layer and some bits of lacing. The body was a hazy orange-amber color, which produced some sparse bubble trains up the sides of my tumbler.
S- A rich melange of crystal and stewed malt aromas with a balancing dose of citrus piney hops. Impressions of toffee, nuts, and coniferous forest. Impressively bold and balanced.
T- The nose translates to the palate quite well here; huge nutty and toffee-like malts are met with a balancing citrus and piney hop flavor midway. Finally in the finish, the hops begin to reveal their bittering properties with a mild resinous bitter flavor that lingers on the tongue.
M- A big chewy body accented with a creamy quality from the soft carbonation. A mild astringency, which is to be expected from an IPA. The alcohol is well-hidden in this brew.
Overall- This easy drinking brew can go down smoothly in all types of weather. I am impressed with the way it walks the line between typical East Coast and West Coast IPAs. I will definitely stock-up on this next time I'm in Minnesota!

4.25/5 rDev -2.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a can into a regular glass
A- how do all DIPAs look? Golden amber with a redish hue when held up to the light. Not much head and not much lace afterwhich. Looks good but nothing special.
S- the smell redines the smell of pine in DIPAs. It smells like there is actual pine straw in this glass, but in a good way. There is also a sugaryness from the malt.
T- very piney like the nose. Also has a good wheat taste followed by fruits and a strange taste that reminds me of something rubbery but not exactly rubber.
M- a little bite from the hops. Goes down pretty smooth but the malt keeps it from feeling like a true IPA.
O- very good but i prefer my IPAs to be a little more hoppy.
