4.53/5 rDev +4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
A: Pours a deep golden hew with surprisingly clarity. The color is complimented quite nicely by a delectable 1/2 inch head that coats the glass profoundly well.
S: At first the typical citrusy aroma comes through, but a second whiff produces the true complexity of all the hops used in this brew. The malts contribute a pleasant sweetness to make it have an almost orange juice essence.
T: If you smell it, you will taste it. Provides an almost identical flavor as the elegant aroma. However, there is a slight increase in the malts. The addition of the sweetness from the malts deliver an excellent backbone for the citrusy hop zest.
M: Perfectly carbonated that delivers an astounding sensation. The hop bitterness does not lie too heavily on the back of the tongue like most DIPA. It conveys the perfect coating with no one area being over whelmed or coming up short.
O: An exceptionally well made brew. This is a beer that hop heads, and possibly those that enjoy a quality brew, would enjoy.
Serving type: growler

4.21/5 rDev -3.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Bottled 4/24 and poured into my Teku...
A - Dark orange appearance, super sticky lace is all over the glass throughout consumption
S - Nice floral aroma, some muted cluster of fruits, grass and very dank
T - Citra wallops you in the face, grapefruit, oranges and the malt backbone is pretty significant
M - Medium body, mild carbonation, decent hop bite on the palate
O - This is a pretty great DIPA, which seems to be the common saying these days. I love the citra and malt combination as they balance each other out greatly both upfront and on the finish. Excellent beer.

3.88/5 rDev -10.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Poured from the bottle into a small snifter.
A: Rich golden color with a short light tan head. Very honey-blonde in appearance.
S: Big juicy hop aroma with some caramel and light fruit.
T: Lots of citra hop flavor and some caramel with a lasting bitterness that isn't overpowering; plenty of fresh juicy fruit notes.
M: Smooth and semi-sweet with a dry, slightly bitter finish.
O: This was a very fresh bottle, less than three weeks old and I was very impressed. I am not typical an IPA fan, let alone DIPA, but I would drink this again in a heart beat. Gotta love those big citra-hop beers!
