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.

While still better than the majority of mass-produces beer, this is a representation of the style I am not fond of. It's all hops with just a bit of malt sweetness before the hops take over.
Pine-y resins of hops comes through on the pour, with a pale wheat-straw colour giving up a decent-sized head that dissipated quickly, leaving very little lacing. The taste was as I described above - you get a malty sweetness on the tongue that quickly gives way to the 4 varieties of hops used in this brew. This BA cannot taste any hidden notes of fruits. Finish is very dry & bitter, and this lingers for quite a while on the palate. Mouthfeel is decent, a little thick & with good carbonation.
Overall, not a favourite of mine.
