3.34/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

22 oz bottle. Six or eight bucks from Neds.

Appearance: Beautifully clear golden orange color with a just off white head. Nice head retention and lacing.

Smell: Not impressed. Piney hops, but not a powerful load. There's a bit of wet grain or earth aroma and some estery fruitiness which doesnt belong at all.

Taste: Better than the smell, by a lot, but still not too great for a DIPA. Its got a nice sharp, but not harsh piney bitterness and a decent pale malt sweetness that rounds out the middle. Finishes dry and bitter, in a good way. There's a bit of estery flavor too-- not fruity hops, but an estery off flavor as if it fermented hot.

Mouthfeel: Can't knock it. Appropriate carbonation, slick, good dry finish.

Overall: I'd never even heard of this brewery when I got this, and now I'm not excited about trying anything else of theirs. It doesnt taste bad, just weird.

4/5  rDev +6.4%
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.

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.
