look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured a full bomber into a 34oz mug. Darker orange-yellow, crystal clear with a thick foamy white head that dissipated slowly, leaving tons of beautiful lacing. Smell is sweet flowers mostly; hops and pine are less prominent. Taste is bitter on the tongue, but mostly sweet malts upon swallowing, and then the hoppy bitterness comes at the finish, lingering nicely. Alcohol is not very noticeable and blends into the hop flavor; it's a good thing this comes in single bombers instead of 6 packs. Mouthfeel is as expected, crisp but a fuller body than the taste would suggest. Overall not the best DIPA I've had, but certainly a good one and one I'd pick up again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Bomber into mug.

A...clear golden with a bright white, fluffy head.

S...not as pungent as I would like in a dipa. Some light grapefruit, pine and yeast.

T...sweet, bready malt up front. Turns into a pine resin and finally lets a small amount of hoppy bitterness shows up.

M...feels thick and resign like. Could maybe use a little more carbonation.

o...this is a very pleasant brew. I would like a higher ibu in a dipa but, I would delicately buy this again.
