look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Clarity is awesome on this shiny, metallic copper brew with a half finger head that retains well and covers the glass evenly. Very small amount of lacing, which is odd. Aroma is full of juicy fruit, such as pineapple, grapefruit, and other tropical fruit. Pine is a major aroma as well, with a hefty amount of biscuit and wheat bread. A little bit of Christmas type spice is in there as well. The heavy bread aromas don't carry over to flavor. It's more like white bread with some astringency and vinous flavors, followed by grassy and herbal bitterness. I get some oniony quality in the finish as well.. It really kicks in with bitterness in the aftertaste, lingering a good while. The feel is balanced with a dry finish.

For being an Avery DIPA, this is very balanced. Lots of malt character, but the hop flavor is lacking in my opinion. Could have used more depth in the flavor as well, as the astringency really gets in the way of tasting it fully.
