3.23/5 rDev -11.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
22 oz bottle. Pours clear ruby amber with a big creamy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is sugary melons, caramel malts and some piney hops.
The flavor is sweet sugary caramel malts, and melons with a good bitterness in the finish. It has some odd notes in the flavor though - green caramel apple. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a decent sweet sugary DIPA with caramel green apple.

Sampled at location and growler to take home. Pours a darker red color with amber hues throughout. A soft white head with ok retention. Semi cloudy.
The nose is more balanced from a DIPA. Closer to a East Coast IPA. The hops come out nicely with a herbal and floral nose. Some citrus, grapefruit notes as well. The malt come out with a soft caramel and bready note. Some yeasty undertones and a hint of diacteyl.
The taste is a bit more on par for a DIPA. The hops come out more vs the nose. A good citrus and herbal hop note. Some bitterness but not balanced to the finishing hops. The malt backs up the hops well with some caramel and a hint of roast (or an astringent malt. Either that or over sparged). Yeasty as well and some light off notes. Hints of diacteyl linger but just could be me.
The body is moderate to moderate full. A bit astringent as mentioned before but more of a malt astringent quality. Some chalky notes in the finish, but a nice lingering hop flavor stays with the palate. Overall a decent DIPA but some minor issues.
