4.71/5  rDev +15.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Tried the beer several times on both tap and from the bottle.
Reviewing from the tap:

Golden color with a great head. Some of the best lacing I've seen as far as IPAs go.
When I think of a D-IPA, this is exactly how I picture it.
Walling will stay at the top of a pint glass long after finishing the beverage.

Aroma is almost entirely citrus and pine, very strong tangerine and grapefruit notes.
Pretty typical scent overall, but still very exceptional.

Taste is sour, bitter, hoppy, and very pungent. Sharp and musky.
The taste is borderline overbearing in terms of bitterness.
Very strong dank aftertaste, sort of a "stinky" flavor.
The flavor changes dramatically as it warms up, bringing out more than just the intense hops.
Observing the taste more closely, the hops are complimented with a bit of pine and malt.
Goes great with food as well, as the strong, bitter taste lingers well.

For such a bitter IPA, the mouthfeel is surprisingly light.
Very refreshing, smooth and crispy. Carbonated very well.

One of the best D-IPAs I've had in terms of flavor.
Great on tap or from the bottle.

Super malt bomb, but excellent strong IPA. Full of flavor. Super sweet, not much hop to this one. Like it overall.

Strong character, lasting flavor of malt. Some pine overall. No grapefruit, or pineapple,but slight tangerine. Overall malty IPA, which isn't my favorite, but good..
