3.55/5 rDev -1.9%
Served in a shaker, Hoppy Holidays is a dull, burnt orange with an eggshell head that leaves heavy lace, very nice patterns.
Smell is pretty hoppy, citrus, some dank, and sweet malt. Not as strong as I expected.
Taste is pretty malty, even though it's a fairly hoppy ale. Kind of sweet, the citrus notes from the hops accentuate the maltiness, but it's not really over the top, really a bit under-whelming as a DIPA, but works as a NW winter warmer due to the maltiness.
Mouthfeel is drier, slick, medium bodied. There's a watery smoothness that reminds me of a cask pour, but it's not.
Drinkability is okay, it's pretty smooth, and the ABV is well hidden. As a malty holiday ale, I really dig it. As a DIPA, not so much, it needs much more aggressive hop flavor, especially considering this is fresh from the source on draft.

3.68/5 rDev +1.7%
A: Poured a murky orangish copper color with a nice white head and some bubbles.
S: Not much on the nose which leads to believe it was not dry hoppe, if so lightly and there were no aromatic hops added to this
T: Bittering hops were plentiful. As far as the taste goes it leaned toward a pine,lighter floral theme, not much booze detected. SOme caramel, some crispness, english malt was used in a small amount of this
M: Nice, coating and balanced but more so malty than hoppy, this tasted like a malt heavy version of Alesmith Yulesmith to me
D: Pretty nice and easy to drink
