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

12oz bottle served in a shaker pint 11/29/2014.

A- Slightly hazy yellow-orange body. Two finger thick, fluffy head with a long retention time. A bit too long, but otherwise nice lacing and film. [4]

S- Honey, grainy malt, biscuit, grapefruity hop resins, a bit of floral and grassy scents as well. Solid, nothing mystifying. [3.5]

F- A bit on the sweet side; sweet up front with honey, biscuit and pale malt sweetness; switched up with a moderately bitter floral, grassy finish. A bit of grapefruit permeates the whole thing as well. [3.5]

M- Medium bodied, nice carbonation, a bit soft and mellow. Not difficult to drink by any means despite its 10.1% ABV. [3.75]

O- Decent DIPA, nothing to write home about. It's on the sweet side but not as bitter as you'd expect from a big DIPA like this. [3.5]

Final score: 3.55
