Pours a copper amber color with an off white head, leaves speckled lacing around my glass. Aroma has nearly burn grapefruit peel, big alcoholic malt layers too. Look it feels like a DIPA double fruit and bitterness, the beer is resinous and all around a let down compared to other DIPAs. The beer is medium to full bodied finishes smooth throughout my glass. Overall I'm a fan only one of the two kind bring about.

3.51/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

True dirty amber color with some considerable hop haze. Head cropped low and fell out. Just a medium-sized ring leftover.

Dank, resinous hops. Lots of crude citrus, orange, lemon, and pithy grapefruit. Some pine. Some beefiness to the malts. Light caramel, still dry enough.

Solidly bitter and piney. Some caramel sweetness, but definitely hop dominant. Aspirin-like chalkiness. Maybe some medicinal astringency, too. Lacking complexity.

Heavy body. Has swish due to big bubbles. Alcohol presented.

So-so. DuClaw is not impressing me.
