4.55/5 rDev +7.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A- poured into a tulip glass; pours a dark amber-orange with a copper hue, two-finger creamy white head, good retention with thick lacing as it settles
S- oily hop resin with citrus zest, tropical fruit, dank and earthy, clean mint, hop-dominant
T- pungeant and wet hops with strong notes of citrus, herbal, leafy and minty. Some tropical mango and pineapple flavors mid-palate that is balanced nicely by a slight caramel malt. The finish is nearly bone-dry, but leaves a pungeant oily hop bitterness on the palate long after the pour, with a touch of mint
M- medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel with a warming finish. Drinks no where near the high ABV, very well hidden.
O- this is definitely a hop lovers beer, the hops linger on the palate like very few beers that I've tried, so strong it almost provides an astringency to the flavor. Definitelt some uniquely defining flavors and one of my favorites of the style.

4.18/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a growler into a tulip
A: Hazy light brown, one-finger head
S: Lots of malt, caramel, toffee followed by grapefruit, pine and tropical fruit underneath. Complex and very pleasant to smell
T: Matches the nose but the hops are more prevalent
M: Full bodied; malty, hoppy, not hot but I can tell the EtOH is there
O: Not the best DIPA I've had but quite tasty and a classic example of the style. I've had this both bottled and on tap and it's far better on tap
Serving type: growler
