4.18/5  rDev +10.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 5

A - Clear golden brew with a small white head. No lacing.

S - Grapefruit pith, saaz hops. It is a decent, but subdued aroma.

T - Upfront strong citrus pith, white pepper, spruce tips, some peppery alcohol with a hint of honey. It is not very sweet. The aftertaste is only a tiny bit bitter. No where is the flavor really screaming at you, but it is heard - and it is nice.

M - Smooth, thin, refreshing.

D - It has a very nice flavor that is well balanced. I've had better DIPAs. I've definitely had worse. This might be the most quaffable DIPA (or TIPA) I've had that is well past the 10% marker. I've enjoyed this four pack - and I might just buy another.

3.48/5  rDev -7.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Ruddy orange color, thin head with a little lacing.

Smells of hops, resinous, onion?

Taste is a punch in the face with hops, not much malt to balance it out. Slight sweetness and a little bit of alcohol. Hop taste is citrus, vegetal, some green onion flavors and pine. Bitterness lingers.

Kind of an oily mouthfeel, lightly carbonated

Overall, not one of my favorites, is way unbalanced towards the hops and the smell kind of puts me off. Wouldn't try again in the near future.
