3.58/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Bought a 4 pack based on the reviews, and also to support a local craft brewer since we have so few here in TX.
A - clear amber color with about 3 fingers' width of head that dissipated slowly leaving some decent lacing
S - very malt forward with the hops taking a backseat.:..either that or my beer's already past its prime. Sweet caramel malts followed by slight hints of tropical fruits and pine.
T - follows the smell. Taste is opened up by sweet caramel and the hops kick in mid-palate to cut the sweetness somewhat, but not entirely. The malts are strong enough to overpower 85 IBUs worth of hops. To my taste, this crosses over the DIPA into the barleywine category. Banana esters become more pronounced as the beer warms up. The heat from the alcohol is also very noticeable.
M - on the thicker and fuller side for a dipa.
Overall - not a bad representation of the style, but there is much to improve upon. For now, I will be treating the remaining 3 cans as barleywine stuff.
