3.61/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Almost clear and golden in color with a 2 finger off white head which dissipates rather quickly but leaves some nice lacing. Pretty decent carbonation.

As expected, very hop-forward in the aroma. Mainly pine and over ripe citrus.

Kind of laid back on the taste compared to the aroma. The bitter aspects of the hops seem to come through more than the aromatics at first, but then some pine shows up a little in the aftertaste. Just a hint of sweet malt to balance the bitter and the light spice.

Medium bodied, with light syrup. Somewhat warming, actually, call it hot.. Almost drying in the end.

Overall, a pretty decent sampling from DB. Appropriate for a hot summer night. I'll try it again.

3.38/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

A: Golden with a copper tinge, filtered, little carbonation, a finger of off white head which fades fast.

S: Animal offal, canned peas, clean linen, little hop or floral or citrus or any other ipa quality, more like a lager. Slight hint of spices.

T: Bitter white grapefruit comes to play right at the beginning, light sweetness to balance this, clean linen. Simple, but says it all at once.

M: Medium syrup and powdery balance, medium fine bubbled carbonation.

O: What was lacking on the nose comes in on the tongue, surprising you with a very good tasting ipa. Bought at Trader Joe’s Williamsburg, VA. I’ve been looking for Virginia beers while passing through, and found this amongst a few others.
