3.15/5 rDev -10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Appearance - opaque amber, lite Holden head, minimal lacing
Smell - lite pine, grapefruit and Carmel
Taste - light grapefruit and pine, slight herbals and basil
Mouthfeel - lighter side of medium, seems too lite for a DIPA, crisp edges
Overall - drinks like a single ipa, not bad, but would not order again.
Serving type: on-tap

pours out of the growler a turbid bronze colour with a thin slim head, egg shell white in colour. a good deal of citric zest in the aroma, with a solid brown sugary maltiness to back it up. the taste profile renews the sum of the nose, in that there is a rather pedestrian citric zing on the tongue; built up by a base maltiness equally boring and semi sweet. anonymous pith provides a slap of bitterness to quell any residuals. a peek of alcohol spice rides the finish into the sunset without much fanfare. a rather mundane tasting IPA or DIPA . What gives this offering a bit of depth is the girthy body, round and supple complimenting the sticky yet smooth mouthfeel. so thumbs up for that. as for being drinkable? it sure is. an easy, albeit larger, IPA/DIPA meant to open an evening and appetite.
overall, this really is a type of beer to pair with a meal or appetizers. the alcohol is prevalent yet well integrated into the innocuous taste profile. it paves the way without paving you over. i'd definitely drink this again in the restaurant, and for $11/2L, makes for a fair priced growler.
