Overall a descent beer...
Poured an orange/copper color with a little bit of haze that has cleared with some time. A lot of head on this beer even with a not avery agresive pour. A little lacing as well.
A slight pine aspect on the nose, but otherwise not a terribly aromatic beer.
A good taste overall. Creamy malts and a nice hop biterness. The balance was nice, but compared to some other DIPA's, something was missing here....I just cannot point out what. Some others have mentioned a sweet malt character...I get that, but it does not make the brew off balance in my opinion.
The mouthfeel was nice. I liked the carbonation level and the finish of the beer. Not a palate killed and also a fairly medium bodied beer.
I could drink more, but would probably not seek
to buy this one again. This is one to drink and compare for me, but now one to have as a standby brew.
