Light amber color with a fluffy off-white head. lots of bubbles. smell is extremely sweet and malty. not a big hop punch in the nose like you expect from a DIPA. Tastes a lot like gnarlywine, only hoppier and not as good. The flavors are all backwards for a DIPA: malt overwhelms the hops, sweetness overwhelms the bitterness. it is light for a DIPA, and a little over-carbonated in my opinion (especially since the emphasis is on the malts and not the hops). Drinkability is great due to its being on the light side, but the beer as a whole does nothing to give it a boost. disappointed with this one, especially since lagunitas has been blowing my mind lately. oh well, if you're not Stone, you can't do everything perfectly can you?
