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

Note, unfortunately this bottle is about 3 months old. I had tried a bottle while traveling that was only 1-2 weeks old and it was exceptional, but unfortunately I don't have tasting notes from that.

A - Hazy orange tangerine body. Pure white head with nice lace and poor retention.

S - Surprisingly muted, but fresh. Herbal with grass, wood, and a mellow malt.

T - Super smooth. Honey into a smooth rampup of alpha bitters, woody hops, and a touch of tarragon. Nice lingering honey and herbal bitter finish.

M - Medium body and smooth. Shade light on the carbonation.

O - 3 months definitely de-fanged the hops, but what's left is still a great DIPA.
