3.86/5  rDev -3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Deep red amber glass holds a solid cover of white foam that dries onto the glass.

Smell: Juicy fruit, pineapple, peach, pear, mild esters, no alcohol, yeast, or malt profiles, just fruity, impressive.

Taste: Forgive me; Hawaiian Punch. A real fruit basket, but under it slowly emerges a bitter hoppy IPA. The deeper in I go the more the hop flavor builds, and starts to show the alcohol.

Feel: Heavy, oily, burning, sudsy.

Overall: A good beer. Heavy handed in many ways, a brutal alcoholic slap hidden in a fruit basket.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a Dogfish Head IPA glass.

A - 4.75 - Pours a deep honey color, touches of caramel and orange in its hue. Massive head potential, forms 2 and a half finger of slightly off white, dense head. Medium head retention, spotty lacing.
S - 4.25 - Things you would expect from a DIPA. Hops, grapefruit, oranges, apricot, peaches, mangos, and somewhat wet, dank hops.
T - 4 - Not so much a double on the taste as just a good standard IPA in my opinion. Begins with a bittersweet hop-forward arrival, ends on a somewhat neutral grapefruit and pineapple finish. Not exactly of the strength of a double in my books, but tasty nonetheless.
F - 5 - Very slick, oily and smooth textured mouthfeel. Really digging the mouthfeel on this beer.
O - 4.25 - It is very good... going into it with the mindset of a standard IPA. As a double, not anything crazy special. This should be packaged, advertised and sold in six packs as their flagship brew and I think it would do them a world of good!

Best Deep Ellum has to offer. It doesn't necessarily have the look (appears a little flat) but whatever it lacks in other departments, it makes up for in flavor. It's easy to drink - a lot smoother and more pleasant than their flagship IPA.
