Thought it would be better.. Not to bad.. Piney taste.. Grapefruit hint of taste.. Could be an acquired taste?

The beer pours a perfect copper color that you can almost see through, minimal haze.

The smell is fantastic, juniper and evergreen. Very fragrant and enjoyable.

The taste is near-prfect for me as a moderate hop-lover. Clean and dry, mildly fruity with lots of "Pine" (I think people mis-construe Pine with Juniper, so i'll say Pine but i mean Juniper).

The mouthfeel is good but as a fan of carbonation I could stand it to be a bit more bubbly.

Overall, I think this is a fantastic Extra IPA, I've had a few of their other beers and think this is the best by-far. Seems to be less available then their others but absolutely worth looking for. Cheers.

Excellent DIPA. IPA's and DIPA's need to have dank and/or crisp hop aroma and this one certainly does. Nice citrus flavor with a clean, slightly piney finish. A bit strong on the alcohol but not overpowering. The malt aspect is like a good referee in football - it provides a stable background without affecting the outcome in an adverse way - the hops shine! Medium body and carbonation that make it surprisingly drinkable. Excellent beer overall and a staple in my fridge.
