Poured into a snifter from a 22 oz. bomber, no brewed on date.

Appearance was nice, hazy orange, no chud.

Smell is fruity, citrus and melon.

Taste is reminiscent of the smell, lots of melon and orange. Drinks easy.

Nice carbonation and smoothness, i like bubbles so this works for me.

Overall, this is a nice DIPA. I dislike that they don't brew their own beers, I think they spend too much time on the labels and marketing. That said, this is a pretty good beer, more of an IPA in taste then a DIPA but an easy drink either way.

Hazy orange color with a little head.

The nose is intense with citrus, orange, and pine.

The taste is citrus, resin, orange and tangerine. So tasty I keep sipping.

Mouth feel is sticky resin, lingering. Very easy to drink. Not much carbonation but enough to make it very smooth.

Overall this is a great brew. For me it's in the spot of some DIPAs that get called a regular IPA but this has what it takes to clearly be a DIPA.

Brash has some great stuff which is always worth trying. Cheers!
