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.
