New Hampshire

3.3/5  rDev -16.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a tulip. There is a nice dark orange body with some haze. The off-white head is large, foamy, and sticky.

The aroma has some nice pine with some orange zest. There is some nice malt sweetness in the aroma as well, maybe some honey graham notes.

The taste is sweet with nice melon and pine notes. There isn't as much bitterness here as one might expect form a DIPA, but the bottle does say it's only 59 IBU.

This is medium to full bodied. This beer is okay, I probably wouldn't get it again unless I knew for certain it was very fresh.

Serving type: bottle
