4.46/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a perfectly translucent gold with orange and amber hues. There is one full finger of pure white head that settles fairly quickly leaving a nice frothy ring along the edge of the glass. Great lacing as it drinks.

S: The nose is wonderful. I get slight sweet malt, a ton of orange citrus, and some slight grapefruit notes. It smells juicy and inviting, not stinging and harsh. There is a touch of dank skunky hops in there as well, but it doesn't overwhelm the citrus in this beer.

T: Mmm. This one follows the nose to a T. I get a quick bit of sweet malt, and then I'm hit with a huge amount of deliciously juicy citrus. Big orange, and a touch of lemon. As the beer moves to the back end, I get a blast of grapefruit bitters that last after the beer is gone.

M: Full bodied beer. Sweet for a second and then the palate is overwhelmed by citrus. It's wet and juicy to start but gets sticky towards the end. The bitter, almost skunky, hops linger on the palate for quick a bit after the beer is gone.

O: Great beer. It's super citrusy and drinkable for a DIPA. My only fault with this beer is that it gets a bit harsh and boozy on the back end. Hard to complain though, it is super drinkable and delicious from start to finish.

4.19/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

The body appears crystal clear with a deep copper tone, the head is thick, fluffy, and white. Pine and lemon aroma wafts from the glass top with twinges of biscuit and caramel malt notes. Subdued malt sweetness with a bold hop bitterness show up throughout the taste; mild cereal and honey-like sweetness. Medium-heavy body with a crisp, tingly mouthfeel; dry finish.

A very nice, well-rounded DIPA. Bold and assertive IPA aroma, taste, and feel without sacrificing balance. High ABV is well-masked with the grain and hop ingredients. Very enjoyable.

4.23/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - cloudy, golden honey color. Amber hues as well. No real head to speak of.

N - sweet oranges, grapefruit & malts

M - perfectly creamy but not to heavy. Light carbonation

T - begins with your fruity orange favors and moved into the sweet malty backbone, almost no alcohol taste to be found

O - my favorite aspect of this brew was the mouthfeel. Very easy to drink and definitely enjoyable.
