A - slightly cloudy orange/amber colour. Good whitish head that sticks around.
S - Nothing stood out for me. Hints of carmel malts maybe that didn't show up in the taste. Underwhelming.
T - Very bitter upfront, as one would expect. but the bitterness never mellowed as I've come to expect with IIPAS. Hops are on the sweeter side, mango etc, but not very prevalent. I'm not familiar with the Green Bullet hop variety but I like it. The problem with this beer is it doesn't stick out enough. On top of this the beer lacks malt. As a result the beer is bitter throughout IMO. This is especially true of the aftertaste. It is a bitter and boozey . My favorite heavy IIPAS have a sweeter malty aftertaste to round out the high alcohol and hop levels. This beer seems to lack that.
M - lots of mouth feel and decent level of carbonation
O - I like this beer, it just seems closer to a higher strength single IPA than a double like dorado/dugana etc that I was expecting

Good DIPA. Pours a hazy orange with a good size off white head into a pint glass. Head retention is good and there is plenty of thick lacing on the glass.
Aroma is ok, some citrus hops but not that pronounced in such a strong beer.
Taste is pretty good. Plenty of citrus hops with a little pine resin in the finish. There is some maltiness as a balance but this is a hop forward beer.
Mouthfeel is not all that rich for a high octane beer. It is crisp, the bitterness is good and the alcohol is not apparent.
Good strong DIPA. There are better ones out there but this is pretty good.
