3.75/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured out of a 7 oz bottle into a pint glass.

The look is a mudded dark orange, with about a finger and a half of head. Smell is somewhat inviting, the usual hoppy smell you would expect from a DIPA. The malt really comes through in the smell as well.

Taste is balanced, with a protruding pine taste as well as some citrus. But it seems like something is missing...

Overall, it is a solid beer, but probabaly not something I will go out of my way to obtain again.
