4.31/5 rDev -0.7%
22oz bottle poured into an IPA glass. Bottled 7/12 and consumed on 9/6.
A - Light orange with less than a finger head. Significant carbonation. Head slowly dissipates. Delicate lacing as beer is consumed.
S - Very nice. Mango, orange, and perhaps some other acidic tropical fruits greet you after the pour.
T - Lemon, peach, white grape, followed by some grapefruit rind. Does not hide ABV, but not unpleasant... alcohol hints are definitely there. Not as hoppy or bitter as I expected. The lasting finish is not bitter hops, but rather a slightly malty raisin alcohol finish.
M - Well carbonated, but on the whole, not remarkable when compared with top tier DIPA's. However, this is still a great beer.
O - I'd place this in the 80-85th percentile of DIPA's I have tried. The appearance and smell were top notch. Taste and mouth feel were very good. I would gladly drink again, but in my opinion, I have had better.

4.11/5 rDev -5.3%
A - Pours a nice copper with an orangish hue. Nice 1.5 fingers of a white head. Low carbonation coming up.
S - Great hop blast with huge grapefruit notes. Smells like juice almost. Sweet/tangy malt at the end on the nose.
T - Nice wave of flavor over the palate, great hop bite at the end. Fruity characteristics in there, grapefruit again. Bitter bite thats very nice.
M - Light to medium body. Nice carbonation level, finishes very clean.
O - Good IPA, was not wowed by this tho. Nothing over the top good about this, but drinkable and enjoyable for sure.
