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

A - Pours a mid-amber to orange color with a solid 2 fingers of white head. The head lasts a while and has good lacing.

S - Good citrus, with a bit of malt in the back. There's hoppiness apelnty!

T - Citrus, pineapple, but once again with a nice malt backbone. The alcohol isn't noticeable, which I find surprising given the high ABV. This is nicely balanced in the taste, between citrusy hops, which are cut back at the finish by the malt backbone.

M - Good carbonation, a little bit more aggressive than most DIPAs I've had recently. The taste doesn't remain super bitter in the finish, which is a plus for me.

Overall, this is a wicked DIPA. I love well balanced beers, and this is certainly that. The only qualm I have is that, for the amount of good smells, this lacks slightly in the taste. Still doesn't prevent it from being one of my favorites!
