look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

A: Very bubbly good solid golden color with a nice thick head.

S: Smells sweet but not overpowering. Smells like something you would want to drink.

T: Slightly sweet slightly bitter, tastes a bit like honey and some caramel notes. Bit of a nutty taste as well.

M: Smooth and goes down easily. Probably the best mouthfeel of any IPA I've had.

O: Great beer. Lives up to its reputation. Could easily drink several in a sitting without getting tired of it.

4.16/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 12 oz bottle into snifter.
A: Pours a clear light orange amber with 1/4 inch white head. Good retention.
S: Nice strong aroma...can smell this from a few feet away. Bright citrus, pine, and herbal hop notes. Soft caramel malt. Hint of honey.
T: Strong hop notes--citrus, pine, herbal (follows aroma). More of a balance with caramel malt presence here (compared with aroma).
M: Light-medium body. Strong bitter hops. Nice lingering on the palate. Dry finish.
D: A nicely drinkable and fairly complex DIPA. A solid offering, but not top notch.
