I have had a few of these and have a good idea on my impression at this point.
Nice pour with a smallish 1 finger head that stays until the bitter end on top of a dark copper brew.
Aroma is great, big citrus hop nose as well as a touch of carmel rolls.
Taste is hops up front, my only (small) complaint is that it is a little too bitter, and a little less flavor coming through on the hops. Citrus and pine dominate the taste with nice caramel malt to round out a touch of biscuits.
Mouthfeel is a little dry for my liking (which I do understand it to style), but not puckering dry bitterness. this is a very drinkable DIPA, but there are others I would choose over it.
Serving type: on-tap
