Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Brooklyn chalice.

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About two fingers of off white head which settle into a thin patchy layer.

Smell: A juicy and earthy hop forward aroma with hints of citrus fruit and grass. Citrus hop presence with hints of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, lemon, and melon. Earth hop hints of grass and some subtle pine. Sweet bready malt hints of caramel, biscuit, cracker, and yeast. Also some tea like hints and a sweet scent of sugar. A solid hoppy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy and earthy hop forward taste with somewhat rustic notes of citrus and grass. Citrus hop notes of orange, grapefruit, mango, lemon, and melon. Earthy and floral hops with notes of wet grass and a little pine. Good backing presence of sweet malt with notes of caramel, cracker, biscuit, and yeast. On the sweeter side of IPAs. A pretty solid taste.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy, oily, and fairly chewy. Finishes dry. Alcohol heat is mild.

Overall: A solid take on an Imperial IPA. Nice notes of citrus and earthy hops.

At 10% the boozyness isn't that bad. Some Sweet Malt balances it out well. An easy drinking DIPA.

Enjoyed at TORST in Brooklyn. A good IPA, but not one of my favorites.
