4.2/5 rDev +3.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from 12oz bottle.
A- Poured a light golden yellow color. Not expecting this at all...very clear too! Two finger white head stays for a little bit leaving thicker streaking lacing on the glass.
S- Tons of fresh citrus hops in this. Some light malts in the background that come in small hints but this is very hop forward. The only downfall for the aroma is it has only one hop profile to it. Where is the piney earthy hops at??
T- Big hop kick in the front of this. Citrus hops explode onto the palate first. Some light malt backbone throughout the beer but you can't really taste it except in a quick flub by the hops. Some light pine backing into the ending of the beer. Very hop forward of a beer...looks like the east coast has been taking some notes.
M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. A little heavy sometimes on the palate during certain times while I was drinking. Citrus hops left resin all over the teeth and palate. Some light piney hops in the aftertaste with a light bready malt. Crisp flavors overall.
D- This was a easy drinker that I had a hard time putting down. The east coast looks like it is wanting to gain some DIPA justice that the west coast has been seeing for years. This beer is something that should be tried. It just might surprise you!
