look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Dark amber with a slight haziness. Forms a rather small almond colored head, but it is fairly stable. There is some minimal lacing.

S: Aroma is pretty good with a blend of sweet caramel malts and lots of fruity, juicy hops.

T: Taste is even better than the aroma and I've got to admit this is the most perfectly balanced IPA I've ever had. Starts off with a slight sweetness: caramel and toffee with a little toast. Then the hops kick in: primarily citrus, orange, and grapefruit with some pine and a slight hint of tropical fruits. Then there is a bit of spice on the finish and the alcohol just barely peeks through.

M: Medium bodied with appropriate carbonation and a mild to moderate bitterness.

O: A pretty good DIPA (damn these shitty new ratings). About as perfectly "balanced" as a DIPA could ever be and I'm the type who enjoys my DIPA heavy on the hops. But this one still gets it right with a complex blend of both malt, hops, and even a little bit alcohol as well. Very nice.

Serving type: growler

Enjoying this beer on tap at Jackie O's. Beautiful orange amber in appearance. Strong scent of piney/citrusy hops right up front, smooth and balanced flavor, not overhopped like some DIPAs seem to be. Nice finish with a lingering piney flavor. Overall a great DIPA when fresh.

Serving type: on-tap
