4.95/5 rDev +9.8%
look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Poured from 12oz bottle
A: Great amber/orange color that you can see right through. Nice head that quickly disappears. Light lacing in the middle of the glass.
S: This smells delicious, but isn't as potent as I would expect. Really had to put my nose close to smell. Floral smell and a touch of honey.
T: One of the most balanced DIPAs out there. When it first hits the tongue you taste the honey and malts and it is very sweet. As the hops come in you taste pine and a tap of floral. After your done drinking, the pine flavor sits perfectly on your tongue for a few minutes.
M: low carbonation which makes it crisp, but it also has a certain fullness to it.
O: Such a tasty beer. The balance of this beer is what makes it so great. perfect blend of malt and hops makes this such a sought after beer. Cheers!

4.49/5 rDev -0.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
12 ounce bottle poured into a tulip. This was bottled on 01/28/14 so is about a month and a half since bottling.
Appearance: Pours straight amber with a half finger of sticky white head, that slowly fades to a rim around the glass.
Smell: Resin, honey, citrus, "tropical" hops, hint of pine, malts. Big "dank" quality as well. Definitely hop forward; nice and pleasant.
Taste: Really restrained for a 10% DIPA. Honey, resin, citrus, mango, pine, pineapple, malts. Nice IPA flavors blended well together. Slight alcohol on finish.
Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium body. Finish is a bit bitter with just a dash of heat.
Overall: Very drinkable for 10%. Nice hop flavors. Very well put together. I would definitely go to this one pretty often if it were in my area.
