look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a bomber into a snifter, the beer is a dark, opaque, amber-copper coloring with a filmy, wispy, bright white surface coating of head. Aromas of rich caramel, solid grapefruit, and resinous hops. Extremely balanced nose. Flavors are malt forward, with caramel and toffee in the backbone, supporting a solid citrus blend highlight and some subtle spices of grass, lemon pepper, and bitter resin characteristics. Very balanced on the palate, too. The flavors are robust, but the feel remains on the light side, slightly dry, and very drinkable. Smooth, slightly sweet and slightly bitter aftertaste, with a slick, clean finish and subtle bitter linger. Solid beer, very drinkable, and a tad bit of a lean to the malt side. ABV is hidden very well.

3.94/5  rDev +11.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Very dark for the style, almost mahogany, with a lot of cloudy yeast particles in suspension; the modest head leaves some splashy lashing

Smell: Particularly fruity, with pear and stone fruit elements and just a hint of orange/pineapple

Taste: Very fruity flavors, too, with a bit of a tropical edge; just a bit piney, in the middle, with a somewhat sweet and fruity finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I really like the flavor profile but it took me a while to get beyond my expectations; certainly a far cry from what one would expect from a DIPA these days

3.65/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a clear dark reddish copper in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass and some crimson red + amber highlights. The beer has a finger tall sudsy foamy light beige head that reduces to a small thick patch, a medium sized medium thick patch, and the remainder of the surface of the beer is covered by a thin film along with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of herbal and pine hops along with some lighter aromas of slightly sweet toasted and roasted malts.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of toasted and roasted malts with a light amount of sweetness. That is overtaken by moderate to strong flavors of herbal and pine hops along with just a hint of citrus/grapefruit pith hops. Moderate amounts of bitterness.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly sticky.

O: I enjoyed this one and it matched really well with some homemade pizza - with jalapeños, pineapple, and pepperoni. It was nice to have a DIPA with a slightly different hop profile - very light amounts citrus but much stronger herbal aromas/flavors.

3.59/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

My first stab at a Triple C ware.Pours into an impy nonic a clear deep orange infused copper color with a great looking full two finger lighter beige head atop that lasted for quite awhile.Aromas are lighter with sugary sweetness,nutty and even faint chocolate malts mixed in with piney/leafy hops.A nice fuller feel and not over carbonated.Flavors of piney and leafy hops go along with hefty sweetness and mild nuttiness,not a hop bomb by any means here.It's ok but the hop profile needs to be amped up a little bit to make this something to seek out...in my opinion.
