Is there such a thing as an entry level DIPA? If so, this is it. Slightly paler than most DIPAs, fairly clear with a nice firm off ivory head. Nose that isn't quite as bold as would be expected, mellow fruit essence. Mostly pineapple. Hop notes are somewhat subdued for style, no malty sweetness in the nose. High carbonation for a light mouthfeel with a solid hop presence and a solid balance of malty characteristics to round this out. Not one I would seek out, but a DIPA I would gladly drink. Average+ for the style.
Serving type: on-tap

A - clear amber, frothy one finger head fades to film.
S - tropical fruit salad, mango, floral hops.
T - on money, fruit salad still, pineapple, hops to the fore and well balanced. Little bittering hops makes easy drinking. Good malt backbone. Hint grapefruit / pine. Overall quite a moderate taste level.
M - medium weight, moderate carbonation. One stage from oily. No hint of ABV save a little warmth.
O - excellent effort, well balanced beer, not as in your face as I would have expected.
