look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: The DIPA is a brilliant amber orange color that showcases a thick billowy head that laces extensively in the glass.

S: The ale has a crisp hoppy aroma, thick with piney and citrusy oils. This is the type of beer that you could sit and sniff for several hours.

T: The body of the ale screams hops. The oily thick vine resonates through the ale, providing s a strong piney resin element that outshines all other varietals. As the pine subsides, some apricot and tangerine citrus elements emerge, sustaining an entirely different component of the ale.

M: The mouthfeel is thick and juicy hops, flavorful without dulling the tastebuds.

D: This is an excellent DIPA, showcasing a strong hop body that never overwhelms the mouth. I really enjoy the piney finish, it nicely sums up the ale.
