3.93/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This is listed at 100 IBUs, just released 3 days ago!

25 oz bottle pours an effervescent caramel with 1 finger of ivory colored head. Viscious, keeps effervescent look, decent head retention & faint lacing

S: Pineapple, doughy, cakey, grapefruit; fades a touch at the end, a bit of boozeyness

T: Follows the nose, much tropical fruit up front, plus a little bit of pine & grapefruit. Much pineapple & grapefruit as this warms, more doughyness, pine & even a touch of aspirin. Finishes with a grapefruit assault plus aspirin, pine & pineapple & even a touch of pear & orange rind

MF: Chewy, subtle carbonation, very hop forward, but loads of malt& tropical fruits to balance it out fairly well. Boozy warmth presence

This beer punches its weight to be sure. Hopheads should love this. I wanted a little more balance, like it & would buy it again. In a rough style to make an impression, there are tons of great DIPAs out there. Only tried 2 of their brews, so far I am thrilled with these guys

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

4.16/5  rDev +4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

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.
