3.96/5 rDev +7.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
- 10 hops, 10% abv, 100 ibus.
A: A great sized building head rests above an autumn orange colored body. A strong sense of effervesce rages within. Head retention is rock solid, lengthy in stay and leaves big clumpy patches of lace on the glass.
S: Nose showed a brief moment of tropical fruitiness and caramel, sweet and wet sense, fresh, very nice.
T: Flavor had a sweet lemony pine start, fresh citrus, wet with some spruce and warm toasty caramel. Tropical fruitiness with a finish of a small alcoholic lemon warmth. Warm pine, evergreen and a fading mint flavor.
M: Prickly mouthful, active carbonation, body leans on the light-medium side.
O: Overall like the fresh and wet approach, sweet and smooth start, citrus, nice complexity of hops that accent and play off one another rather then clash like so many other examples that overload the hop bill. The alcohol is near undetectable, with a very high rate of drinkability, multiples are not an option but a must and given. Tasty, sweet flavor forward hop palate, not dry and overly bitter like the norm, very good and a crime to miss. So far a newer offering that seems to be flying under the radar but for how long.

3.13/5 rDev -14.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3
Appearance: amber orange with almost no head which disappears almost immediately. Carbonation bubbles disappear quickly, next to no lacing.
Smell: sweet and caramelly, more English hops are present, hard to decipher the American hops used.
Taste: Malty sweetness with a mild bitter presence. Flavor lingers well, pleasant but not impressive. Alcohol presence is decipherable but subtle.
Mouthfeel: Much heavier than I was expecting from a signature dipa.
Overall: easy to drink, especially as a dipa. Not what I was expecting but a flavorful beer nonetheless. Probably would buy again, but not often, especially when I'm in a hophead mood.
