look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

On tap at Peekskill.

Golden orange pour, fairly hazy, with a thin collar of white bubbles; a few dots of lacing on the glass. In the nose, oily hops and sweet bready malts, with solventy undertones. The taste was malt-forward, way too sweet for the style, with some citrus oils present, but too dense and too overpowered by the malt profile. Some fusel flavors were also present, which came out more as the beer warmed. Mouthfeel was dense and chewy, body was medium. Kind of messy overall, and not very good for a DIPA.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

12 oz. pour at the brewery into a tulip glass, unknown bottling/kegging date, drank over 30 minutes:

A: 3/3 - golden-orange coloration, murky (could not read or see through on initial pour); whitish rocky head settles into a a 1/2 finger head; moderate carbonation with islands and small eggshell-white carbonation; moderate alcohol legs

S: 10/12 - huge citrus and piney aroma on first detection; mild biscuity bready malts and some alcohol

T: 16/20 - the taste matches the nose nicely - sweet admixture of dank/piney and tangerine/orange peel flavors from the Simcoe and Citra; in the middle of the mouth, these flavors continue to develop with some slight biscuity/bready malts and alcohol; finishes dry and inviting subsequent sips

M: 4/5 - moderate-to-high body, moderate hop oils and alcohol fullness; appropriate carbonation for style

O: 9/10 - excellent West Coast-style DIPA: huge PNW hop aroma/flavor that finishes dry; the triple IPA moniker is definitely overstated at <10% but still very dry with high drinkability; super recommended for purchase and/or trade

TOTAL - 42/50

Serving type: on-tap
