3.69/5 rDev -10.4%
Poured into a sam adams custom glass, color is very transparent straw, good bubbles, thin head, bright white in color, no lacing and just a ring remains.
Aroma is big hops, pungent, citrus, grapefruit, mango, lemon but is quickly followed by sweeter flavor, could be the malt or rice/malt mix.
Taste is big hop forward flavor, citrus heavy, some pinier notes than the aroma, flavor is dry but very thin, something seems off, maybe the rice/malt combination with the strong hops aren't blending well. that said it is quality taste from such thin ingredients at this strength.
Mouthfeel is very dry, very crisp, nice lingering flavors and solid dipa presence.
Overall, this is a very good beer, flavor and aroma are slightly off from a good dipa, but it comes through in the flavor and mouthfeel.

4.19/5 rDev +1.7%
Paid the price for this on $3.50 for the single. Into a pint glass.
A - Very bright for a DIPA. Not much orange or brown just a mildly hazy bright yellow. Head is just a 1/4 inch that settles to a decent lace ring. Sticky lacing a plenty.
S - Juicy citrus and melon hops, bitter yet strong. Caramel and cracker malts but mild smelling. Not sure how much influence the rice did until I sip.
T - Very clean hop profile not too bitter or in your face just enough to keep it interesting or from being too watery. I am guessing the rice made this smooth and a touch bland but very drinkable.
M - Light to medium at best. I love a balanced high octane beer.
Overall its a very good beer that I wish I could find at a reasonable 1 dollar four pack or 15 dollar six pack. Can't say it wasn't worth the price of admission I would love to have another.

3.8/5 rDev -7.8%
Poured from a fresh 12oz. bottle into a pint glass
A: Hazy straw color with a nice frothy white head
S: A little citrus and some pine but not much else coming through for me
T: Very mild hops for a DIPA... I was surprised but the alcohol is masked very well
MF: a little under carbed in my opinion, but maybe I had a bad bottle.
O: Decent DIPA but will likely not buy another sixer

12 oz bottle, 'Use by" date of 5-11-14.
appears a crystal clear pale straw color, soapy bone-white head. looks like a light lager. fruity hop nose. citrus, grassy, orange. some corn too. minimal malt flavor in the taste, clean hop taste. crisp. earthy, not as much citrus flavor as in the aroma. thin body, high level of fizzy carbonation.
overall - it's okay, but not how I like by DIPA's.
