This beer poured a clear amber with a two finger high off-white head. There was decent lacing visible. The initial smell of the beer was that of citrus and pine hops. The initial taste of the beer were the citrus hops, which paved the way to some earthy tones and pine. It finished with a barley like presence. The brew had a medium body with light carbonation.
Overall this was a decent beer. What threw me off with the flavor was the barley, which I don't like tasting in a DIPA. Also, for a DIPA, this had a rather non present bitterness. I was hoping for something to atleast give my mouth some bite, but this brew lacked. In general, I'd recommend any DIPA lovers out there to try, but that's about it, don't be picking this up again.
