Thanks to rowingbrewer for the great extra.

12oz. Can into an imperial pint.

A: Poured a glowing orange color with a moderate head. Decent retention but nice lacing.

S: Plenty of citrus with orange, tangerine, and pineapple. Slightly resinous. Some floral.

T/M: Bitterness is pretty low for the style. Plenty of the same citrus with a bit added pineapple and some mango flavor as well. A candy like sweetness but without a big chewy mouthfeel. There is a bit more mouthfeel than I'd like in a dipa, but nothing outrageous.

D: Overall it's decent but I'd like some bitterness and a lower FG to dry it out a bit.

A big thanks to caguiar for this awesome extra! Cheers!

Appearance – Pours into my Bruery sniffer with a cloudy amber color and about half a finger off white head that dissipates quickly leaving slight lacing.

Smell – Spicy hops, grass and floral notes. Slight grapefruit, pineapple, and lemon zest.

Taste – Not as much fruit/citrus as I was hoping/expecting. Spicy hops up front, slight grapefruit, malty backbone. I am not 100% sure of the hops, but it kind of reminds me of Gubna, which I did not particularly like (I am getting some oniony flavors right now).

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied, decent carbonation, oily on the tongue.

Overall – A solid DIPA, though not one Id probably trade for in the future. Am very glad I was able to finally try this, but was honestly a bit let down.
