One of the four out of the Beer Camp Mix this year.
A: Golden in the body. Amber colored closer to the top of the beer. I prefer my DIPA's to be more amber than blonde, but that is just a personal preference. A nice two finger head as died down leaving some nice lacing reminding me of where the head began.
S: I wish there were more citrus hops. I'm picking up some more pine needle like hop presence. Make no mistake, this is a hoppy beer, but it doesn't overdue the citrus notes. With so many IPA's accentuating the citrus quality of hops, I find this as a nice reminder of what a DIPA can taste with another variety of hops.
T: The taste has more if the citrus that was absent from the nose. That continues on to a little sweetness, rounding out with quite a lot of bitterness.
M: There is a nice amount of carbonation. With the beer not very syrupy as most DIPA's are I found the carbonation to be quite adequate, leaving a dry finish, enticing me to consume more.
Overall, this is a nice addition to the beer camp mix. Not my favorite out of the selections, but a very decent DIPA at a desirable price.
