A-For a DIPA I always expect them to be darker and have more head... but lately they never do. Looks like a lighter beer.... Always strikes me as weird.
S- Smells pretty good, really hoppy, earthy and citrus, reminds me of Unearthly. Actually, I havent had that in awhile... You sure this isnt that? :)
T- Hmmm this is very tasty and I like it alot. Its kinda sweet, but thats okay. Smooth and easy drinking. I detect a bit ofg alcohol. Hops are a lil bit bitter, more earthy and flowery, citrus is in there somewhere.
M- Nice, its a bit thicker than Id hink considering the light color, I like it.
Overall, this is a pretty good DIPA for only 9 bucks a 6er. Id buy it again. I wouldnt search it out though.

Pours a clean looking golden yellow with about a finger of head, what head there is fades slowly basically leaving a cap on top, no lacing on the glass though.

Smell has a very flowery aroma, picking up citrus and pine and a strong presence of sweet malt, touches of other light fruit as well, even picking up an almost apricot aroma.

Taste starts out with a strong piney front, quickly fades to the sweet malt backing which also quickly leaves and finishes with a semi-bitter finish, citrus and light fruit flavors linger about, carbonation is medium to medium-high with an appropriate body.
