Very nice DIPA from Ladyface.

Orange/red pour with a decent white head.

Lots of juicy hops in the nose. Tropical fruits.

Taste is focused on the floral hops noted in the nose with a nice transition to a slightly sweet caramel body. Lots of tropical fruit flavors here.

Bitterness is restrained. That said, it nicely balances out the sweetness throughout.

Very nice. This is a DIPA that is very mellow in the bitterness department but has a strong floral hop component that balances nicely with the malts. Quite pleasant. Recommended.

Serving type: growler

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - deep amber color, a bit darker than i like my dipas

S - pick up a lot of guava, lemon

T - follows the smell, pick up guava and some lemon citrus. Bitter

MF - medium on the body, nice carbonation and dry finish

O - it's a good dipa, stands out more for the distinct flavor and smell profile that you don't get in many dipas than it does for being a great dipa (if that makes sense)

Serving type: on-tap

This wasn't brewed once. I had a goblet of it at the brewpub a less than two weeks ago. This review is from notes.

Pours a deep clear brass color with a bright white head that lasts the entire glass. Citrusy hops fill the nose. Bready malts and a bit of an alcohol kick also make themselves known. The taste is a robust mix of piney, grapefruity hops and caramel, cookie dough malts. Floral hop notes show with warmth. Alcohol spice is always noticeable but at no point becomes overbearing. A moderate carbonation and medium body allow the hops to coat my mouth. Pithy bitterness and herbal notes last a good while in the finish.

This is a balanced DIPA. Huge hop flavors meet their match with an equally hefty malt profile. Good stuff and probably a good introduction to the style.
