look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a pint glass from the bottle. 3/27/13.

Golden and clear with a thick white foam..
Lots of citrus and caramel on the nose
Flavor is a little sweeter than I would like - the malt is very present. Plenty of hops, just not as hop-dominated as I prefer. Finishes with a nice clean bitterness.
Body is medium with moderate carbonation.

Overall, a tasty beer. Malty and citrusy.

Hoppy aroma, citrusy, resiny, fruit
Pours brilliant amber, 2” rocky foam head, another root beer float head that produces ledges of lace.
Palate: hops rule but they are not overbearing. Citrusy hop flavors and bitterness blend well with the light grainy malt flavors and the light large pitted fruit flavors produced by the yeast.
Medium body and carbonation. OK but not great.

Pours golden brown with a finger head. Boozy smell with not much character. Wheaty to the tongue but finishes boozy. I bought it because of the name to be honest. It wasn't bad but it didn't blow my mind. Overall, It's an average IPA. I would buy it again but only if I was left with few options.

The back-end bitterness is very mild with most of the hops coming from late additions, as far as I can detect. It seems weak and underpowered for a DIPA. The flavor is nice and mild with no booze detected, pleasant caramel and biscuity flavors being countered by citrus and fruit hops. I'd drink it again because it wasn't a bad beer by any means, it was just not what I've come to expect from a DIPA
