4.38/5 rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Served in a large snifter.
Clear, amber body with no substantial head.
Smells of citrus fruits and hops, sweet caramel malts. Intermittent piney hops, as well. This is a relatively big smell. Wonderful!
Taste follows aroma with great uniformity. The caramel and toffee malts entice you to drink faster, as the bitters discourage you from doing so.
Beer is slightly undercarbonated and feels a bit too sticky. Subsequently, the hops lose a considerable amount of "pop" as the beer warms up.
Overall, this is an amazing beer. It's delicious and big, just what a DIPA oughta be.
Serving type: on-tap

This is a very good beer, but I have had better. Maybe I have held on to this one too long, but it was a bit too malty for my taste. Although the bottle promotes the balance and "control" like a raja of both hops and malts. I feel like the malts are too intense for the beer. Well balanced but for the style I would say medium to high ratings.
Color: Dark bronze, but with some transparency, also a very low amount of head and lacing.
Smell: Not as intense as a West Coast IPA. Maybe that is my favorite style?
Taste: Balanced, I got this one on sale for a super deal so I figured I would try it, but I would not pay what the original price reflected.
Overall: A Solid beer, well balanced, not as much hops going on as I would like but its not a bad beer in any regard. But, to me there are much better in the same price range.
