look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance - The beer poured a light golden color into the IPA glass, forming a generous white head. Lacing was left as the head receded.
Smell - The citrus comes through in the aroma with a sense of dank following closely behind. The malt profile is detectable.
Taste - The citrus makes the initial impression but their is a peppery profile that follows. Orange, grapefruit and papaya notes are present. The taste grows progressively more bitter as the citrus fades. The malt is difficult to detect, making this lean more toward an American version of the style.
Mouthfeel - The thickness allows the bitterness to linger in the aftertaste. It certainly fits the style.
Overall - The sweetness I expect from the malts in the background is not present. To be a really good DIPA, a beer needs to hit this mark. It is the only real shortcoming in this beer.
