On tap at the brewery.

Pours a clear golden amber, with a one inch head, and good sticky lacing.

Pretty good aroma here- sticky, piney resinous hops, with a bit of citrus.

The taste follows, but is a bit too muted for a DIPA. The piney dank hops are nice, but it seems like more should've been added. Not much malt flavor noted here- maybe some sweet graininess.

Medium bodied, sticky-sweet finish. Could be drier. Low carbonation.

This one needs to be cleaned up, with brighter hop flavors. That being said, it's still a decent stab and pretty drinkable.
