3.68/5 rDev -6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Pours a somewhat hazy golden color with about an inch of eggshell white head. Pretty nice head retention, limited lacing. Pretty good appearance.
Smell: Very citrusy and floral hop character. Not a lot of pine or bitter hops detected in this, but lots of orange rind, and tropical fruit. Malt backbone detected underneath the hops.
Taste: Malt base provides balance and quite a lot of sweetness. Hops are in line with the smell; very citrusy and tropical, but not a lot of bitterness. Very dank. It's a big beer and the alcohol is detected somewhat, but all in all is hidden fairly well.
Mouthfeel/Overall: Mouthfeel is all of medium bodied; with moderate carbonation. Pretty smooth. Overall a nice DIPA. Packs a little too much heat for me but has some nice hop flavor.
Serving type: bottle

This could have been a great beer... except that I don't like grapefruits. Damn the cascade hops!. It poured okay, but the head was minimal and what little there was faded in seconds. Color was a slightly hazy rich gold.. not bad at all. Aroma was slight, a little hoppy. Mouth feel not bad at all... but then came the hops. I love hops, just hate grapefruit off flavors and that pretty much ruined it for me. I think a lot of people will like this beer, especially if you are into cascade... just wasn't for me. Very hard to get past that to review the beer faithfully, so I pretty much called it even on this one. Don't want to slam it as they did'nt do anything wrong, just a difference in tastes..
