3.54/5 rDev -4.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Standard DIPA appearance, with an orange-amber colored clear body, one finger thick head, and lots of streamers. Why mess with success, right? The smell was a little subdued, as the hops didn't hit me in the face. I could detect some grapefruit, and mandarin orange smells, as well as a bit of fresh cut hay. The taste was also not very hoppy to me. There was a herbal bitterness, and a touch of spice, but mid palette and finish was dominated by honey like malt. The sweetness overpowered the hops, but it was not a dark fruit like sweetness approaching barleywine character, but rather a sugary, syrupy taste, making this an odd DIPA. It did feel good and soft in the mouth, and the finish was clean. It was a different take on the style for sure. The closest similar beer I can think of is the Green Flash Green Bullet.
