3.48/5 rDev -16.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Pours a dark golden color with a slight off white frothy head. Plenty of "chunkies" floating in this beer. Smell is mostly bitter hops. Some malt comes through in the finish, but this is dominated by bittering hops and alcohol.
Upon my first taste, I am trounced with bittering hops and a huge alcohol burn. This is big and badass. Usually DIPAs are highly sessionable beers that Ill have a couple of in a sitting. Not this brute.
Mouthfeel is astringent and slightly cloying.
I love this brewery. Ive not had anything remotely resembling a average beer from them.

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.

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
