3.93/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
served in a pint glass, poured from a 12 oz. bottle.
A - A good hazy amber with a fluffy head that retained well, leaving good lacing.
S - Lots of floral hoppyness with a slightly dirty backing. Piney and fresh with little malt on the nose.
T - Actually tasted a bit more bitter than other DIPAs like Hopslam, with a less powerful hop punch. Still quite hoppy and florally aromatic with a sweet & bitter grapefruit taste as well. (Thanks to my cousin for picking out the grapefruit)
M - An interesting light yet slightly syrupy feel. The hop resin was fairly biting, but the carbonation and the light body held it together well.
D - I shared the bottle with my cousin, but I could have easily had a whole one myself, though I don't know if I'd want to have more than one.
overall - If my IPA-averse cousin liked it, it's gotta be doing something right, no?
