look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a ale chalice (straight sides): color is amber, slight haze, but great head with fine bubbles and nice lacing.

Smell is over sweet malt, mixed with aged hops, I'm guessing. Canned date is November 2013 so this is probably an over aged hop bop where the hops have gone bad, unfortunate.

Taste follows the nose, overly sweet malt, tropical fruitiness, hops and malt mix poorly with a near astringent finish. Again, unfortunate on the aging i think. Other flavors are honey, grapefruit, grass and earthy hops.

Mouthfeel as the taste leads into is a very astringent, bitter and harsh. It does not linger poorly but upfront presence is not pleasing.

Overall, a poorly execututed dipa, way hoppy and sweet for my taste, and some poor aging on top of that.
