22 oz bottle from Dimension Liquor in Lake Forest

A - Pours a dark amber, reddish brown with a slight haze. Light head which dissipates quickly.

S - Nice citrusy, piney nose without being overwhelming. Floral notes are present with toasted bread.

T - First taste is citrus with mild tangerine flavors and some minor grapefruit. A caramel and resin finish. Not your overly hoppy DIPA. It is unexpected and the alcohol doesn't assert itself.

M - Very light mouthfeel, especially for a DIPA. Doesn't have that bite that you'd expect from a double. Smooth drinking, goes down easy. Almost a pilsner feel to it.

O - I enjoyed this beer even though it was not what I expected from a double IPA. It was recommended to me by the beer expert (Maida) at Dimension. They knows taste and never steer me wrong. I would drink again but not as my first "big IPA". Almost a strong (8.2%) session ale. (892 characters)

Clear dark orange, nearly amber, with a thin off-white head that eventually leaves spots of lace down the glass.

Very hop-forward aroma, with the aroma exploding with grapefruit and pine aromas combining together nicely.There's a bit of sweetness but it doesn't come off as a major component of the beer's nose.

The flavor is moderately bitter, with big notes of grapefruit and orange, along with some sticky pine. The malt profile is a touch sweet, with a hint of caramel.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, though crisp and incredibly drinkable.

Better than Primordial--this stuff is awesome! (653 characters)

American Double IPA
8% ABV

Appearance- Amber with some haziness but not much, Head is small and doesn't retain itself long.

Aroma- Citrus hops, underwhelming a little bit. Maybe some pine behind the citrus

Taste- Citrus and melon definitely. Not much bitterness, a very balanced double. Wish some more hops came through. Maybe a little breadiness from the malts.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodies that lingers for a few seconds. Moderately carbonated as well.

Overall- Will drink again but wont target if other options are available. I think it’s a good DIPA for people who are not big HopHeads. (640 characters)
