4.15/5 rDev +1.2%
look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25
on-tap poured into 10 oz. mini-tulip (almost a vertical chalice, no real flaring)
L: amber/brown; very clear for a DIPA, not crystal clear like a lager, but you can see through it no trouble; tight, thick head about 3/4 inch tall that sticks and laces some on the way down; gorgeous
S: pine, citrus, grain (?) ... something sweet, probably not malt -- it's like sweet grapefruit or sugar-doused pine; some saltiness (am I smelling the nearby barbecue truck?)
T: bitter ... big bite of pine and some more pine with some grapefruit in there
F: pound-for-pound, might be the most drinkable DIPA I've tried so far ... it's lightweight with lots of carbonation, so it feels easy to deal with despite the massive flavor. some might frown on the combination, but I love it
O: it's a little like New Republic's Dammit Jim! on steriods ... no grain, no malt notes, but the hops here don't need to share the spotlight. it's juicy but light, bitter but easy to handle, and for those of us who like more pine and/or grapefruit than mango/caramel, this DIPA is perfect. the brewery has hit on some great recipes
Serving type: on-tap
