look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Cigar City pint glass.
A: Deep copper color, nearly clear. A big burst of carbonation with a good size white head directly after the pour, but both quickly subside.
S: Resin, pine, more subdued grapefruit with a good amount of sweet bready malts and mild caramel aspects.
T: Resin and pine bitter, maybe some citrus pith hops up front. The malt sweetness comes back nicely and they both fade together after the swallow, with the hop bitterness lasting a bit longer.
M: Medium body for style, lower carbonation than most, alcohol noticeable but well-masked for this ABV.
O: Pretty unobjectionable, but pretty forgettable at the same time. It strikes me as a good exemplar of the new "average" for American DIPAs. The aroma could use some help - pretty low on the nose for a DIPA. I'm not going out to buy a 4-pack (or 6, or whatever they come in), but I wouldn't mind drinking some on tap somewhere if it's what they had.
