look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pale amber, not much of a head to it.

Smell: Grapefruit, pine, malts, and citrus zest.

Taste: Grapefruit, pine, malts, and citrus zest.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a bitter hop aftertaste.

The Verdict: Delicious. Full of flavor while still hiding the high ABV, this is a winner. The longer I’m on the west coast the more I fall in love with all of the great breweries out here, but Victory, Stillwater, and Dogfish Head remain at the top of my list.

12oz Bottle from Total Wine Palm Desert CA for $3

Appearance - Amber colour with an average size white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, hops, grapefruit, apricots

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, grapefruit, and hops. There is also some resin and apricot/peach.

Overall - A way above average DIPA. Lots of vibrant flavours and yet still somewhat balanced. Perhaps a little sweet, but hey, it's a DIPA.
