3.14/5 rDev -24.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.
Damn flashbacks to crappy late-90s/early-00s animated films... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunset brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises pine needle, light menthol, mild sweet biscuit, and light spicy greens. The taste mirrors this mixture exactly. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, this is an average DIPA at best, one that is actually balanced (a plus), but one that just doesn't distinguish itself in any real way.

4.16/5 rDev +0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Best before date of 02/15/14. Poured in to tulip.
A - Translucent yellow/orange colour with a thin layer of cream coloured head.
S - Much lighter nose than expected. Citrus, pine and sweet caramel. Inviting but not seemingly a DIPA nose.
T - Makes up for the lack of pungency in the nose. An assertive bitterness hits the tongue right away with pine, grapefruit and orange rind flavours. Despite being very hop forward, the malt bill still contributes and sweet biscuity and somewhat buttery sweetness.
M - Medium body. Sticky and oily. Light to moderate carbonation.

4.31/5 rDev +3.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Modest head but it leaves a continual blanket of lace. Clear with amber color.
Smell: Smooth caramel base with a light floral hop touch.
A good malt start. This yields to some alcohol warmth. The swallow features some grapefruit rind tasting hop bitterness. Long bitter aftertaste, but this is not extreme. Creamy body with a subdued carbonation level. Deceptively easy to drink.
Serving type: on-tap
