look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

An old favorite. Have to add a caveat that I had this beer nine months old. Here goes:

A: Somewhat cloudy orange. Pours a massive head with a ton of residual lacing. Very good overall.

S: Very mellow, actually. It has a very grassy, floral smell that's mixed with some citrus and pine. Not very robust, but still good. I think that the smell isn't as robust owing to how old the beer is.

T: Very good. Pine and citrus and more apparent in the taste than in the smell. There's also a lot of honey and caramel malt to balance out the hop bitterness. Overall, quite good. It's almost exactly like Dogfish Head 90 min. Lots of piney hops mixed with honey, caramel malt.

M: Very thick. Excellent for a DIPA.

O: A very solid beer. Might be hyped somewhat, but it's still excellent.
