Got a glass at the Stormbreaker Brewery.

Appearance- a thin creamy white head when served, with some minimal lacing. On the darker end of IPA colors.

Smell- citrus and pine smells are dominant, almost all hop aroma, very little malt smell

Taste- malty, Carmel and biscuit flavors at the front end are followed by a strong hoppy bite. The hops are citrusy, and quite bitter (although not too much for hop-heads like myself). This is not a sweet DIPA, and has just the right amount of dryness.

Mouthfeel- a bit thinner than I've come to expect in DIPAs, probably more along the line of most strong IPAs.

Overall- Hop flavors are dominant throughout, as one would expect with the style, but enough malt backbone to support it. A very nice beer.
