4.25/5 rDev -2.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
A- Orange golden in color, my pour left no head and limited effervescence. This may be due to my first attempt at using an oversized wine glass. (Pretty sure I need to buy IPA glasses)
S- While sense of smell is clearly my nemesis, I sense floral notes and high alcohol citrus.
T- This DIPA is bringing the bitterness and doesn't seem to go out of its way to cover that with any sweetness. I do sense a little honey flavor without any of the sweetness that you would expect with that. Definitely some citrus going on as well.
M- This has a clean and slightly astringent mouthfeel, not sensing any oiliness. The crispness that was lacking in my glass is present in the mouthfeel, leading me to believe that my pouring/glassware didn't do this ale any favors.
O- I have a stout in the fridge in order to break up the delicious DIPA/IPA streak that I've been on. I am enjoying this ale but it isn't standing out over the others.
Serving type: growler
