look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Bottle Served in a 16oz Goose Island Glass

Appearance: Amber, with a solid white head

Smell: Piney, hoppy, sweet,

Taste: Sweet, Caramel, Sugary. The hops are not cutting through on this one. It reminds of the Undercover Investigation Ale.

Mouthfeel: slight to moderate carbonation and thin bodied.

Overall: I wouldn't consider this a DIPA. I would characterize this as a flavorful Amber ale. The hops are not cutting through on this. It is very sweet and malty. The sweetness overpowers the hops.
