Very enjoyable dipa. Color was pretty good and smell was not over the top but seemed to lack something. Taste was good...not to boozy and good hops blend with citrus. Feel was good and overall a good enjoyable dipa.certainly would get this again and would like to try more from this brewery.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bomber, bottled just yesterday, and poured into my Deschutes tulip...

A - Pours a crystal clear golden yellow color, with a huge 2 1/2 finger off-white head. I can see right thru this. The head slowly falls, leaving nice fluffy peaks and loads of lacing.

S - Very dank hop-forward aroma. Combination of tropical fruits like papaya, mango, and pineapple, and musky earthyness. I also get hints of carmel malts. Nice balance.

T/M - Bursting with citrus hops on the front. Grapefruit and lemon on the initial taste. A slight alcohol note that transfers to a tongue coating hop resin. Hop dominant, just like a DIPA should be. Medium mouthfeel, good carbonation.

O - I think this is one of Las Vegas' best kept secrets. This DIPA is everything I look for, Not watery, but not too heavy. Hop forward, and a great aftertaste. I've also had this on tap, and it's amazing. If you're in Vegas, and you see this on tap, don't pass up this seasonal release.
