3.33/5 rDev -23.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Split a can with Hophead717. Thanks for letting me finally try this.
A - Nice amber color with an off-white frothy head of about a finger.
S - Not nearly what I expected. Some pine, citrus, but pretty muted on the hops. This was a fresh can (around a week old), so I was pretty surprised by this. This thing is a malt bomb somehow. I believe it advertises Scottish malt or something on the can, and you definitely get that a lot. Some malty sweetness, breadiness, etc. More of an amber than an IPA.
T - Follows the nose. Big letdown for a 99 IBU IPA. Not sure why this gets so much praise.
M - No alcohol, pretty smooth with a moderate carbonation and medium body.
O - Was expecting something else. Definitely not expecting what I found to be a knockoff of Troegs Nugget Nectar (which I don't love all that much either). The malt they used really wastes all those hops imo. This isn't bad if you're into English style IPAs or hoppy ambers, but that's not what I was anticipating or desired. Wouldn't buy if the opportunity presented itself.

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.
