look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: super light yellow color. A finger of a white head that leaves a lacing on the sides. Perfect clarity

Smell: lots of tropical hops, mango pineapple and citrus along with some bitter and resiny hops. Slight sweetness most like honey to me. Strong bready malt background

Taste: opens with hops. Varies from mango, lemon and citrus to bitter and resin. A honey like smoothness takes you to a bready malt background.

Mouthfeel: drinks smooth but lots of bitterness is left behind.

Overall: a tasty and well balanced dipa. Definitely worthy of a try.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured a orangeish body with good head and lace on top of a textbook aroma of citric and grapey hops and a little caramel malt sweetness. Taste/mouthfeel are the same as the balance is good, beer is medium-bodied and easy to drink, a large citric hop taste profile with some grape and decent caramel malt sweetness all wrapped up in a crisp, dry finish. ABV isn't really noticeable and this is a dangerous sipper b/c it is rather easy to drink and not a tastebud killer.
