4.18/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Golden amber color and clear with white head that lingers well in glass.

Smell is heavily hop floral with hints of rose and cinnamon. Of course there is an abundance of citrus notes. Grapefruit and orange are heavy in the nose.

Taste had more malt character than I was expecting given previous reviews. Yes, there is a massive punch of hop flavor, but not overpoweringly so. Nice grapefruit, orange and pine. Bitterness lingers well on the back of the palate.

Mouthfeel is very dry and medium bodied. Good carbonation.

Overall this is a superb DIPA.
