3.68/5 rDev -8%
Poured into a pint glass a cloudy orange with a foamy head. Lots of lacing. Smells of citrus with a hint of hops. Grapefruit and pine hit the tongue first with a bit of a bitter finish. Medium mouth that's a bit oily. This is a nice beer. Not my favorite, but something I would enjoy from time to time.

Bottle poured in a Sam Adams glass.
A: Pours a slightly hazy orange/amber color. Two-finger creamy white head with good retention and lacing.
S: Aroma is big hops with lots of grapefruit and orange. A hint of pine.
T: Flavor is similar with a big punch of citrus hops and pear. A bit of caramel malt gives it just a hint of sweetness. Pine hops are noticeable in the finish.
M: Medium bodied. A bit of alcohol warmth. Moderate carbonation.
O: Very nice, well-balanced DIPA. The hops are definitely the main attraction here and you get a lot of that. But there is a good malt bill to keep it balanced. The malt is a bit sweet for my taste, but that’s a minor quibble. Overall, a very good beer and solid effort for this brewery’s first bottle offering.
