Sent to me by my son in Texas. Poured from a can into a glass, this DIPA had a nice foamy head, with plenty of lacing as the glass was emptied. Amber color, a bit on the red side. Dry hopped, with 72 IBUs, and measuring in at 9% abv.

The aroma was a bit piney with some sweetness coming thru. On the first sip, some hop notes, a little malty sweetness then a quick bitter taste. On the back end there was a minimal alcoholic burn, but overall this beer is very well balanced.

One of my favorite examples of the style. So flavorful and yet still balanced. Not an astringent bitterness, but a floral, citrus, and pine experience that pairs well with the malt sweetness.

I'll admit this one is a tad thing for a DIPA, but the flavor profile does it justice. The aroma does not have the punch of some of my favorite doubles but the notes of pine and fruit create a really well balanced flavor that is just so enjoyable. Great balance of sweet and bitter that works so well. This one is a staple in my beer fridge. At 9%, canned in six packs at a hell of a price, this one is a winner!

A - Dark gold, almost reddish. White head leaves heaby lacing.
S - Hop heavy of course. Pine resin, some earthy notes, grass. Light caramel.
T - Little bit of the malt sweetness before the hop bitterness lands.
M - Medium body (which feels thin for a DIPA) Medium carb. Moves over the palate. Bitterness doesn't linger.
O-Surprisingly drinkable for a double. Well put together. Happy to have tried.
