3.68/5  rDev -16%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

I tried this a few weeks ago - just a taste - but today I am having a couple real glasses. My first impressions were not strong and it is only slightly better in the full drink.

The brew looks and smells really great. The head is huge and it is a nearly clear yellow. The hoppy aroma is full and sweet. All hops.

The taste is disappointing. It is syrupy and sweet like many of the weaker versions of the style. The finish is balanced and not very bitter.

I waited until this was almost gone before trying it. Had I missed it I don't think I would have missed much.

Serving type: growler

4.34/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a growler into a tulip
A: Pure, clear orange with a 1.5-finger head
S: Lots of hops- a mix of citrus, floral and pine along with sweet dried stone fruits and some caramel notes
T: I agree this is fairly sweet- caramel up front followed by tropical fruit and grapefruit rind
M: Medium to full-bodied, a bit sweet & bitter though fairly balanced given its 11% abv
O: I would prefer it a touch less sweet but overall this is a fantastic DIPA, well balanced and certainly worth a try

4.91/5  rDev +12.1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Had this at Whole Foods on tap, poured into a tulip glass.

A- More golden than orange, unexpectedly lighter than most DIPAS. Had about 2 fingers of head that hung on for a while.

S-Extremely fruity and sweet, hint of honey.

T- Powerful hops upfront, hint of grapefruit but the sweetness of pineapple carries the day, very smooth, nice mix of bitterness with a clean finish.

M- I'd call it medium bodied

O- A very good offering, one of my favorite DIPAs. Less bitter, and less grapefruit than Bodhi. I would give this one the nod slightly over Bodhi, would like to try them both side by side to see which one I would pick head to head.

Serving type: on-tap
