4.15/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a dri copper body beneath the generous off white head which hangs around for most of the beer and leaves a thin, sticky lacing clinging to the glass.

Abundant hop aromas of citrus and spices float from the glass with a fair malt presence as well. The malt is bread like, maybe borderline rye.

The flavor is great offering palate coating citra and spiced hops with a generous bread like malt backbone. The hops are just awesome and pack quite the punch.

The body is quite full for the style with medium carbonation and a resinous hop finish.

This is a nice DIPA with lots to offer the senses. A overall great example of the style.
