4.7/5 rDev +2.6%
Aroma: Pine, Grapefruit, Lemon zest, orange, and Mango, Absolutely superb nose, the citra hops are outstanding in the nose from this beer! 5/5
Appearance: Hazy ambient orange that glows in the glass, nothing else to say but it looks amazing! 5/5
Taste: Pretty let down here, the nose is so strong and vibrant, but the flavor profile is really muted. Probably because of the excessive dry hopping. It tastes almost like a light session beer, not something you would expect from an 8% DIPA. Even though it tastes very muted it is still full of flavor, Pine, Orange, Lemon zest, grapefruit, and Mango, with a perfect amount of bitterness. This beer would be so much better if the hops packed a bigger punch instead of being so muted on the flavor profile, even though muted it tastes pretty good. 4/5
Palate: Very light and crisp, smooth, leaves your mouth a little dry on the finish, hits like a session IPA and I think it is superb for this beer! 5/5
Overall: This is a great beer, but it is so much better on tap but bottled it is still really good. The biggest thing is the muted flavor profile. Still really damn good though 4.5/5
