3.49/5 rDev -10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Received as a generous extra from a PALMEJ1 trade, thanks bro. 16 oz can with no freshness date.
Pours a dark orange-amber-ruby color with a cloudy body. Head is about 1.5 fingers straight from the can. Average lacing and retention.
Not a ton on the nose, some juicy orange, pineapple, citrus scents, with malty sweetness.
Surprisingly bitter right up from and carries throughout the beer. Not a lot of hop flavoring to speak of. A touch of malty sweetness. The bitterness really overpowers everything and leaves a stale aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is a tad thin for the average DIPA and carbonation a touch low. Averagely dry finish, more of the tongue-numbing bitterness than dryness.
Overall, I can't say I was a huge fan of this. Maybe it was old and lost a lot of its hop flavoring. An interesting brew from a brewery I haven't had before, but probably wouldn't try this again unless I knew it was super fresh, and then only to compare to this experience.
