This was pretty delicious. Not the best of the best, but a very drinkable DIPA and would happily drink again.

Pours a dark amber almost brown with an off white head that trails the glass. The smell was full of grapefruit from the hops, but also a lot of earthy nutty notes from the malt. The taste was surprising with a nice malt backbone up front with a lot of bread flavors slowly coming into the grapefruit and pine from the hops. Was very happy with the amount of balance this beer has given some very intense flavors.

Stronger malt character with a nice hop balance. Nice!
