look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Very intriguing right off the bat. This DIPA pours a dark amber with a slight amount of haze and a sand colored head with immediate strong lacing.
Smell is a perfect balance of your standard DIPA smells, the hops are more piney than citrus which is backed up by a smooth malt aroma.
Taste is just as smooth as the smell. So balanced, so drinkable! Take that miller lite! This beer is ikiller.
No harsh bite, no bitter aftertaste.
One of the best DIPAs in Michigan, which in my book makes it one of the best DIPAs around.

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
