4/5 rDev -3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
12 oz bottle poured into a Duvel snifter. Red-brown cider color with yeast evident. Creamy head dissaptes quickly. lacing is light. Hops, grapefuit and pine up front in the smell and first sips.
Alcohol is noticeable but no where near what you would expect for 13.6 ABV.
This beer improves as it warms, supported by the malt underneath and tempering the bitter finish with a syrupy (bown sugar), caramel sweetness.
This is an unusual DIPA, sweeter, complex and no where near the bitterness (which I like, btw) of some. It might well grab some of you who think all DIPA's are of one ilk. Try it!

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
