4.28/5  rDev +6.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Nice clarity in this brilliant amber-orange DIPA. Big and fluffy two finger off-white head that dissapates very slowly, leaving lots of lacing in its wake. A resiny grapefruit citrus smell makes up most of the hop aroma, but its somewhat faint as this beer isn't overly aromatic. Full-body of bready malt makes up the rest of the aroma. Clean and crisp, but wouldn't mind a bit more of a nose-full in the hop department.

The taste starts off with a quick and lightly toasty bready malt that has hints of caramel and gives the beer a nice full body throughout the taste. This moves into a citrusy lemon-orange zest that has a nice dry flavor and sets up a big grapefruity finale. The hops in the back are both bitter and flavorful, tons of grapefruit flavor backed by a combination of somewhat earthy, resiny/grapefruit bitterness that adds a perfect balance to the full body of the beer. The mouthfeel is a great balance of smooth and prickly with a medium carbonation level that doesn't get in the way, but also doesn't seem watery. Alcohol is certainly there, but way in the background as a soft reminder on the breath.

When you put all of these components together, it becomes a fantastically drinkable DIPA. It seems so smooth and with that full body it is so satisfying. The aroma is a bit disappointing but the taste and near perfect balance for a DIPA make this a very good beer. I'm glad I picked a couple of these up, because it has definitely hit the spot today.
