look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

22 oz. bottle poured into pilsener glass.

A - Pours a medium yellow orange, bright and pretty. Clear. An approximate 2 inch head formed and dissipated very slowly. Gorgeous looking brew.

S - Lot's and lot's of hops. Some grapefruit and a bit of lime. Also noticed a fresh cut grass / fresh air aroma. Very pleasant.

T - Could just be my palate, but according to many reviews, this stuff "ruins" your palate it's so full of flavor. I have to disagree slightly with those who have that opinion. It's a damn good tasting beer, but there are "stronger" tasting DIPA's out there. But this isn't a bad thing. Lot's of quality tasting hops. Noticed only a very small amount of grapefruit, but A LOT of minty, grassy hops. Overall not the most complicated tasting brew, but it's very, very good. Aftertaste is pleasant, not sour as is the case in many IPA/DIPA's.

F - On the lighter side feeling wise for a DIPA. Not too thick, feels good on the tongue. A fair amount of carbonation noticed.

O - A very good beer that IMO doesn't quite "ruin" the palate as claimed. Still, an extremely flavorful and pleasant IPA. Highly recommended.
