First had: on tap at B&G

Hazy amber pour with a cap of foamy white head that retained well and left a bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grass and citrusy hops, some sugar sweetness. Taste was not quite what I expected; there was a good citrusy hop quality there, but also a strange candy-like sweetness that seemed artificial and otherwise misplaced, especially for a DIPA. About medium in body, and though the sweetness was unusual, it did take some of the edge off the bitterness, making this a pretty easy drinker. Not what I'd call exemplary, but still a decent brew. (575 characters)

My son-in-law brought this one back from the brewery in a 33.8 oz bottle with a stopper. Pours a hazy orangy copper color with a medium size white head. Good retention and thick lacing.

Aroma is very weak for a big IPA. A little grassy hops, that's about it.

Taste is mild but unusual. A little grassy hops and a hops bite but the main flavor is kind of an apple cider kind of sweet/tart taste. This is not a bad beer but not like I was expecting in an IPA at 8.5 abv.

Mouthfeel is crisp. The unexpected sweet and tart flavor is not off putting. Just not what I was expecting.

Overall a fairly decent drink, just not a very good DIPA. (646 characters)
