So this is a DIPA right? I ask since the ABV is over 7.5%. Paid $1.99 for the single.

A - Somewhat hazy bright amber brown with a hefty 1/2 inch of head. Not too much sediment so I assume it's fairly new.
S - Mild booze with a touch of resinous pine. Kind of skunky with little sweet balancing malts.
T - Resinous hops, balancing sugary malts not too gram cracker like. ABV is a bit concealed. Not bad but not great.
M - Medium bodied. Alcohol is noticeable with little burn.

Overall it's an OK IPA. Far from great. Not getting it again though.

Bottle > Sensory Pils Glass

A - Clear deep gold with a finger of foamy off white head, no real lacing.
S - Sweet malt, candied orange, booze.
T - Spicy hop resin, syrupy sweet sugary malt mess with alcohol. Vile.
M - Chewy cloying sweetness.
O - Elevator should have just turned this into a barleywine, because thats pretty much where this beer was headed, but overall this is a gross sweet mess that I want nothing to do with. This one is headed to the drain!

This beer looks like juice (unfiltered apple). It smells like juice. And oddly, it kind of tastes like it too. Malty sweetness with barely any hop influence noticable. Smooth feel and easy to drink, but this is no ipa. It's a pretty lame beer. Nice shiny label, but meh. Nothing worth spending time on.

Another whim buy during my Ohio buying trip. The pour is cloudy and a dreary orange color with a thick white head. The aroma is off putting with a lot of booze and stale hops. There is no indication of the age of this bottle but I'm guessing its older. The taste follows being almost spoiled tasting and very stale. This is just not a good beer. Will try again if I can find what I believe to be a fresh bottle.

Appearance: This beer pours a slightly hazy pale orange color and is topper with 1” of white head.
Smell: The aroma of this beer is a blend of pine and grass hops with tasty malt base. There maybe a bit too much malt for my liking but a good IPA none the less.
Taste: The taste has more hops that the aroma but not sure if I would call it an IPA more of a pale ale to me.
Mouthfeel: This is a medium bodied beer that is easy to drink yet good flavor.
