4.2/5 rDev +10.5%
Unknown bottled date but I know it's a few months old.
last of my 4-pack
Vigorous pour, little head. Slight haze, light gold.
Fruity and earthy. Having this outside just after cutting the grass so leaning more earthy, grassy. Remembered the other three more on the citrus spectrum.
Tangy and a touch bitter on first sip. Some alcohol burn but barely. Hides the abv well. a bit of lemon and orange and fresh cut grass again. Pineapple. Not much malt, a touch of biscuit, but not overly hoppy either
Medium body and medium to high carbonation. Pretty clean and crisp for such high abv. Surprised.
This is a pretty good surprise beer. Was expecting this to be overly boozy but it's a really flavorful and refreshing DIPA. Under-rated in my opinion. Seek this one out.

3.51/5 rDev -7.6%
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Spiegelau "IPA" glass.
Looks somewhat disappointing. Keeps a nice steady white head, but it is a light apple juice amber with very evident carbonation. 3.25/5
Smells good enough. Grassy hops with a hint of underlying sweet malt character. 4/5
Pretty one dimensional excess hopped IPA with a tiny bit of sweet malt character at the end. Not assisted by the mouthfeel at all. 3.5/5
Way too thin and way too carbonated. 3.25
I was really hoping to fall in love with this given it's ease of availability, but I have to grade this down on the style for sure. Even as a relatively easy regional find for the style, it seems to disappoint.

3.48/5 rDev -8.4%
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.
