4/5  rDev -3.4%

This one poured a bright orange with a lasting off white head with some lacing after a while.

Wow, tons of citrus, pine and plenty of sweet caramel malt. Actually its really sweet smelling.

It first hits with sweet caramel and citrus then fades to a piney bitterness that lingers for a while on the palate. Pretty well balanced for a DIPA.

Medium mouthfeel with a very resinous feel that leaves a slight oily feeling on the palate.

A very hoppy yet actually quite balanced DIPA. This type of sweetness sort of gets to me after a while and becomes a little cloying by the end of the glass. I still prefer the Sculpin from Ballast Point but this is a great offering.
