4.31/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a bottle into a duvel glass.

A: Poured an amber looking color. About a finger of off-white head. Medium amount of carbonation, and the beer is clear. Nice lacing.

S: It smells like sweet citrus and piney hops. Smells just like a west coast IPA. Also a malty backbone, fairly sweet smelling.

T: At the front it tastes very malty but definitely getting the hop characteristics on the end. I get the citrus hop characteristics. Just a tad bit of alcohol on the end, more warming feeling than the actual alcohol taste.

M: Full bodied. Definitely a sipper. Honestly its more malty than it is hoppy to me. Pretty dry aftertaste though.

Overall its a good beer. I prefer less malty DIPA's but its still good. I think it fits the style pretty well. I really don't get alot of the alcohol. Pretty well balanced.

4.8/5  rDev +13.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Pours golden, dark amber with finger width foamy head that quickly dissipates. Lacing dissipates quickly as well. Boozy, citrus odor. Can detect hints of apple as well. There is a mild hoppy tastes up front with a strong, malty, boozy aftertaste. It goes down very smooth. Definitely a beer for cold weather. Will warm you up like a Brandy or Congac. Very little hoppy aftertaste. Definitely a beer you want to sip by a warm fire.
