look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint glass.

A: Slightly hazy, light orange-amber color with over one finger of persistent off-white foam head. Moderate lacing remains and a fairly continuous band of bubbles clings to the submerged surface of the glass.

S: Resinous hops are redolent with pine and fruity orange citrus. Dankness as well as ambiguous malt heaviness hangs on every whiff. No alcohol is detected.

T: Begins very off-dry, with doughy pale malt and hops aromatics that exhibit very focused herbal mint and spice. Acidity is moderate into the middle where the prominent hops qualities from the smell make a half-hearted attempt to break through on the palate. Clean, pure bitterness defines the drying finish, just slightly affected by greenness. Alcohol emerges from the midpoint onward as the beer warms.

M: Medium viscosity, acidic and very resinous on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: Although this DIPA finished under 10% abv, the overwhelming hops profile makes it seem like an even bigger beer than it is. The IBU needle at first seems pegged in a way that overwhelms the ability to taste discrete qualities. The result is a bloated hops signal that makes this beer seem like a bit of a mess at times.

22 oz. bottle poured into a goblet.

Appearance - Deep copper. Clear ripply body. Big white head. Lots of surface foam and lace.

Smell - Musty pine and grapefruit hop. Slightly nutty malt. Deep caramel.

Taste - Juicy grapefruit. It's the most prominent hop flavor. Strong malt character. Deep caramel. Some sweetness. Not a lot of bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Heavy malt character. Slick and medium heavy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - I felt this was too heavy at first, but this gets much better as I drink it. Super malty but it's got a great flavor.

Served in tulip. Poured a lightly hazy honey-gold color with 1/2 inch of white head that had good retention and lots of sticky lacing.

The aroma was powerful wow of piney hops, with a bit of floral in the background. There wasn't a noticeable malt presence. On the tongue, the hops were a bit more citrusy, rather than piney or floral, and there was a lingering bitter finish. And the malts were barely noticeable, balance is not a word for this brew.

The body was fairly typical of a West Coast ImpIPA, a bit on the thinner side, with a grapefruit bite at the back. Drinkability was decent, about as expected for the style. Overall, a good enough brew, not one that makes me do my happy dance of joy, but worthy of a few minutes of your time.

Serving type: on-tap
