Gave this one a quick tick after the first can but after eight thought it was appropriate to give a short review.
Visually there isn't much to distinguish this beer and the aroma is pretty middle of the road too; you get your standard pine and citrus hop profile on top of a caramel malt base. The flavor really grows on me though; the hops have nice flavor and not simple bitterness, citrusy grapefruit and pine, propped up by a nicely rounded caramel and brown sugar malt base. There's a hint of alcohol but it's very much at appropriate levels for the style and adds to the flavor subtly, without detracting.
Body and carbonation are also mid level for a dipa. There's a slight stickiness to the feel that is very much on par with earlier renditions of this style.
Ultimately if you're looking for a clean, dry, elegant imperial ipa this beer will leave you wanting. It's notably better than most shelf dipas and if you aren't a fan of high bitterness this one may do the trick. Balanced. That is not code for "not hoppy enough." A solid all around effort.
