look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Burnt orange and clear in color. Two fingers of barely off white head with decent retention. A good amount of lacing that sticks pretty well to the glass.

S: Piney hops and citrus, mostly grapefruit and a little bit of lemon. Some sweet malt in there too.

T: A good amount of bitter hops up front. Sweet malt , piney, and citrus flavors. Citrus is a mix of grapefruit and orange. A hint of apricot flavor. There is an occasional booziness on the way down.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation. A little stickiness.

O: Not super complex, but sometimes you can't put a price on drinkability. If you like citrusy and hoppy DIPAs, then this is the beer for you. If you are looking for other flavors besides citrus in your beer, then this might not be the one for you.

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

Clear light amber color with a 3 finger foamy white head, with very good retention and lacing. Smells like grapefruit, pine, and caramel malt.

The taste is sweeter than I would have guessed from the aroma, but there is also plenty of delicious bitterness, and that's what a great DIPA is all about. I can taste grapefruit, pine, caramel malt, and a little pineapple.

Medium bodied with average carbonation. The alcohol is well hidden for 9.50 % abv. Their is a bittersweet aftertaste, and this is an incredibly smooth beer. I am glad I had a chance to try this.
