look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a standard pint glass, color is copper, transparent, head is off white, pretty dense and frothy, about 1/2" thick at pour then laces very well.

Smell is a great blend of hop bitterness, floral, pineyness and then some solid malt toast and sweetness - not oversweet but a nice backing to the strong hop presence.

Taste is similar to the scent, strong hop bitterness, good notes of malt and floral flavors, maltiness is present but not too sweet.

Mouthfeel has a nice lighter malt sweetness, that helps counterbalance the hop bitterness.

Overall, a very tasty, drinkable DIPA - love the stronger hop and malt flavors with a light sweetness.
