Poured a reddish brown body with one finger head and a bit of lace patches.
Aroma is citric hoppy with hints of grape and a little bit of fruit and caramel sweetness.
Smooth and light bodied for a DIPA, ABV well-hidden, retains oily, citric hops and touches of grape and caramel sweetness.
Fuller, bready, dry finish and overall not the best DIPA, a simplistic version if you will, but not as bad as some reviews on here led me to believe.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

First from this brewer...

A - Slightly darker, standard looking IPA. Dark amber body. Mildly sticky lacing. but peters down both head and lacing as she warms.

S - Smell is malt forward with ample citrus hops and a bit boozy malt. Ample.

T - Follows smell, and it's a lot of sweet fruity core, coated in grassy hops in fairly good balance. Hides ABV, but who needs 9% when 6 will do? Not enough nuanced, fruit or personality. Missing complexity.

M - Medium bodied, lacking the mouth feel of the best.

O - It's more in the direction of a boozy "Captain Lawrence" or east coast hoppy beer, but I dont get what the 9% adds, so I would pass.
