Pours very clear orangy amber. Fluffy white head with big bubbles.

Smells nice of floral hops and a hint of grass and citrus. Not overwhelming, but nice.

Tastes nicely of earthy hops, not a huge flavor, but great presence. A light sweet malt flavor in the middle and a hint of spices. Smooths out at the end. Not a lot of bitter, but plenty of flavor.

Feels a tad thin for my liking, feels light, and considering the lower abv, that's expected. Plenty of carbonation.

Overall I think it's a fine beer, good flavor and smell, not quite the hoppiness I am into right now though.

DOA

Oddly a very clear beer. Golden in color with a sticky white head. Big citric hop nose with some malty notes masked below.

Slight sticky sweetness up front which is cut out almost instantly by a very big hop presence. Pine and citrus are the big flavors here, body attempts to be big and juicy but falls just short. Kind of a weird hybrid of an ipa and double ipa in my opinion.

Hop presence is pretty big as well as this beers bite but shys away from being harsh like some other ipas.

Slightly different and good but nothing out of this world, if you love the taste of those commonly used hops you'll like the big hop taste that's present.
