4.15/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Saw a sixer in the beer case and knew this was coming home with me. Poured a bottle into a 16oz Allagash chalice. Sort of a lighter color than what I'm used to seeing with a DIPA. Looks more golden than orange. It's relatively clear with no haze to speak of. Initial pour left an active, foamy head that settled into a light pool of suds rather quickly. Lots of pine and citrus in the nose. No doubt what style of beer this is from the aroma. Lots of grapefruit. I can tell from the aroma that the wife will like this one (she likes those grapefruity ipa's). Initial tastes packs a nice balance of grassiness and citrus. A noticeable combination of several hops. I can't really taste any alcohol here. A nice bitterness rounds out the taste. It doesn't pack that usual double IPA bite, but it's still quite tasty. One of the lighter DIPA mouthfeels I've experienced. Leaves virtually no stick behind and drinks easy. Quite an enjoyable beer to drink. Go buy some.

4.01/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Slightly hazy yellow orange beer with short tight head that fades quickly to a film and extensive lacing.

S - Solid nose of pine, grapefruit citrus, floral notes, with a mild honeyed element, presumably from the malt.

T - Stronger honey couples with a hint of lemon and a certain medicinal element. Another IPA that reminds me of a honey lemon throat lozenge, not that that is a bad thing. This is a pretty delicious brew. Middle comes with some bitterness, and that runs through the close. At the end, the honey comes back, offering a touch of sweetness.

M - Mild carbonation means the bitterness and hop oils hang around. Not a sign of the serious alcohol, though, which is a significant accomplishment.

O - This is a solid double IPA, with bright flavors. An added benefit is this quite drinkable for a DIPA. I will pick this one up again, I suspect.
