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
