4.53/5 rDev +8.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Nose of resinous, sticky pine hops, caramel malts and just a hint of alcohol. The taste is really similar to the smell but the hops are slightly fruitier and the alcohol is a little stronger. It says on the bottle that it ages well (which I didn't notice until I already opened it or I would've kept it for a little while) and you can definitely tell with that alcohol burn. Its hoppy, but its balanced, reminds me a little bit of DFH's 90 Minute IPA, just stronger. Its really good, it deserves its 92 point score.

4.38/5 rDev +5.3%
look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
On tap, pours a cloudy amber with lots of lacing and a thin head that lasts and lasts.
Light smells of citrus hops, and grapefruit
Tastes hoppy but not overbearing with a good malt backbone, citrus hops with a little pine and just a hint of the high abv.
Light carbonation and medium bodied, not nearly as syrupy as you would expect
Overall, great easy drinking DIPA at 13.5% abv.
Serving type: on-tap

4.34/5 rDev +4.3%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
A: orange, cloudy, good head sustained at half coverage, easily re-formed with a swirl of the glass
S: floral and citrus, but with a very earthy backbone
T: pretty much in line with other DIPAs, sweeter to start, a bit of alcohol burn (this might be a notch above others at temp). Sweetness is caramelly (making that up), but cast against a grapefruit back.
O: very enjoyable, and given it jumps the ABV even for a DIPA, might be well worth it.
Serving type: on-tap
