4.28/5 rDev -1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
16oz can provided by UMNbeerhunter, thanks Joe! Poured into a Surly Darkness tulip.
A - Pours an almost ruby color, thick and rocky with 2.5 fingers worth of light tan head. Moderate retention lasting a couple minutes that leaves an intricate web of lacing behind.
S - Smell is heavy in citrus, especially grapefruit, but a good amount of orange comes through as well. A sparse amount of pine makes an appearance, but overall very hoppy and bitter, yet refreshing.
T - Taste is bitter from the start, bringing the grapefruit to the forefront. This beer does boast a rather supportive malt backbone, however, which balances the taste midway through before finally finishing pretty bitter as well. Caramel and toffee mix well with the hops to keep everything balanced.
M - The mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderately low carbonation. Pretty sticky from the hop resins, this beer coats the mouth and lingers with a long, bitter finish.
D - Drinkability is high. Although not a hop bomb, the balance helps this beer in the drinkability department. Supportive malts add a distinctive taste to this beer while drowning out the alcohol.

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.
