3.85/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Clear copper color. Very minimal lingering head.

Nose has a slight bitterness, but it's floral and light. feels like there's some dried fruit and apricot in there, but there aren't any punchy notes in the aroma.

Flat, smooth, and simple flavor that offers very little surprises departing from the smell.

Slight hits of sharp flavor develop on the palate after every sip you take, but ultimately, the ABV does nothing to demonstrate its potency throughout the beer.

Probably one of the mildest, most underwhelming double-IPAs I've tried, but certainly elegant, flavorful and enjoyable for someone who might not be a huge fan of Imperials.

3.79/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours hazy yellow color with a 2 finger foamy off white head that faded slowly and left very good foamy lacing and rings as it went down. Foamy layers hung around on top for a while.

Smells of grapefruit, orange peel, caramel, graham cracker, lemon zest, herbs, pineapple and citrus fruit of all flavors. Nice and fruity, but not much malt balance.

Tastes like it smells, with grapefruit, orange peel, pineapple, mango, caramel, graham cracker, toasted grains, herbs, citrus hops, tea leaf, pepper, mild spices like cinnamon, brown sugar and coriander. Nice and fruity with plenty of citrus flavor, this has better malt balance than the nose and hides the ABV completely.

The hop flavor is good but for a DIPA on the lighter side, but still a good IPA that is creamy and smooth, with light carbonation, a medium chewy body and a slightly bitter finish. Overall a solid beer that I stumbled upon up in Buffalo, NY.

3.98/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

appearance: hazy peach. decent size fluffy white head on the pour. Maybe i'm just thirsty but this looks like i wanna drink it.
smell: Nice, piney, citrusy nose though not particularly deep. Pleasant but subdued.
taste: a little more depth in the taste. some sweetness and citrus but a quickly drying, bitter finish.
overall: Not sure i understand why (and not sure i care) but this is better than the sum of it's parts. Not blown away but really enjoying drinking this.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. No indication of any date on the bottle.

A - A cloudy golden orange. Little to no head, moves a thin lace.

S - This is the strength of this beer. Mango, pineapple, citrus, biscuit malt.

T - Tropical fruit, hop resin, pine, and some touches of pale malts. The abv is well hidden. The finish is grassy.

M - A touch watery, but very refreshing. Carbonation is average for the style.

O - A solid DIPA, one that I am glad I tried. Would have liked some indication of freshness (though it seemed fresh). If the taste can catch up to the smell, this one takes a step up.

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

12 oz bottle into a snifter.

Small white head off the pour but retains a nice ring and patchy foam with lot of thick lacing. Fairly clear deep golden light orange color.

Resinous, almost dank aroma. Some pine and a bit floral. Hints of maybe something tropical as it warms.

Pretty good taste, but nothing grounding breakingly new in terms of hop flavor. Quite resinous and bitter. Floral, piney, and some bitter grapefruit citrus. Some alcohol noticeable but in no way overpowering. Slight tropical fruit towards the end of the glass.

Good mouthfeel for the style. Medium bodied.

Pretty good dipa, but with all the amazing ones out there I probably wouldn't buy this again.
