look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Copper, dark golden hue. Head dissipates quickly. Little lacing.

Smell: Balanced- this won't be a hop bomb. A touch of diacytel.

Taste: Better than the aroma. Lots of citrus. Still some diacytel, especially as it warms.

Mouthfeel: Very drinkable. Maybe the best attribute of this beer.

Overall: Not sure if it should have fermented a bit longer to knock out some diacytel (and bump up the ABV a half point or so). Very glad I tried it, and probably one of the better Louisiana IIPAs.

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

A: poured into a tulip to a nice and clear golden orange with a three finger slightly off white head that is very dense and leaves excellent lacing with decent retention
S: smells of pine and citrus with some tropical fruits and a slight sweetness
T: taste is oily piney hop with some tropical fruit and a little citrus. Malt plays a good supporting role with the slightest amount of caramel sweetness. swallow is slightly toasty with another blast of oily piney hop.
M: this beer is medium on the mouth with soft but adequate carbonation and a resinous finish that coats the mouth and keeps things from drying out.
O: Well crafted with superb balance and great flavors. Not up to par with Ruination, Dorado, Sculpin, Pliny or Myrcenary but it's still a good beer.

This is more of an east coast DIPA than a west coast. Lots of caramel gives this a firm backbone to balance out the generous hopping upfront. At the tasting I was at, someone referred to this as a "session DIPA." I think that's fair. This will satisfy (most) hopheads, but if you're looking for something over-the-top west coast, this is not it. This is a nicely balanced DIPA with something for malt fans as well.
