Poured on a 16 ounce Goose Island Glass

The appearance is light amber, with a thin white head as a result of how I poured it. The lacing is maintained when tilting the glass. look very bubbly.

The aroma is very piney, citrusy, with a huge burst of hop presence.

The majority of the taste definitely come from the hop presence. it is very hoppy, sweet citrusy, piney. I can't taste the alcohol.

The more I drink it. The sweeter it gets. This is, at the moment, my favorite DIPA no doubt about it. I just wished they made an unfiltered version. I love being able to see those little hop particles floating around in my glass. I

3.13/5  rDev -27.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

Much maltier than expected. Bitterness and sweetness battle to achieve dominance. Not in a balanced way. Not crazy about this sweet, bitter IPA. A little sweet for my tastes, despite the bitterness. It's not my cup of tea, altogether. Too sweet and simultaneously too bitter... Not balanced for my preference....
