4.21/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

On tap at Rattle-N-Hum in NYC: pours hazy dark gold color with a 1 finger foamy off white head that didn't move and dissipated quite slowly, leaving outstanding foamy lacing coating the sides with rings as it went down. The rings and lacing went down the entire glass, which was very nice to look at.

Smells of big juicy hops, with a blast of grapefruit and piney hops up front, followed by orange peel, caramel, biscuit, herbs and pineapple. Pretty fruity with strong fresh hops throughout the nose and just enough malt backbone to balance it out well.

Tastes like it smells, with grapefruit, pine cone/piney hops, guava, orange peel, caramel and/or toffee, biscuit, herbs, roasted grains, coriander and pineapple; some floral notes and light spices trail as it washes down, but this one is all citrus and piney hops and quite tasty.

Mouthfeel is smooth and chewy at the same time, with a heavy body, light carbonation and a medium bitterness that goes down pretty easy, especially with this ABV which it hides exceptionally well.

Overall it was very good, but not exceptional. I'd definitely have it again as it smelled great and tasted above average for a DIPA. Great to see a Queens brewery putting out a solid product so early in its career; these Beersmiths are off to a great start and deserve local support.
