look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12 oz. bottle

A: It pours a nice, clear transparent amber that you could trap prehistoric mosquitoes in. The head quickly puffs up to two fingers at the end of the pour, but quickly dissipates to a sheen with a large floating collection of bubbles.

S: The smell might be the best part of this beer (but not to detract from the taste). In a full glass, it packs a Pumelo Punch. It is full on citrus and pine, as all top-notch DIPAs have. Dank, resinous pine with a bit of freshly mowed grass to top it all of, as well as a sprinkling of fresh lemons that have been zested.

T: The taste is very floral though and reminds me of some douglas fir spring tip tea I have had. Hops are prevalent throughout the sip and swallow. The aftertaste makes itself known and it is quite strong. However, it is mainly pine/resin forward. It really tastes how it smells. Like most DIPAs, this has a strong effect on your palate.

M: Very smooth, with tiny, coarse bubbles racing along your tongue as you swallow. Not very think, but a nice, lightly carbonated feel.

O: Sadly, the bottled on date was missing, but it tasted quite fresh. For its availability and price point it is an excellent DIPA. I was glad I found a 12oz. for a mix six instead of a bomber. It also changes nicely with a slight temperature warming. Definitely, a go to for a great DIPA in the area for me.
