4.1/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Small to medium vast creamy head on top of a hazy warm orange colored beer. Smell is a very nice mix of hops, citrus, fruit, mango, peach, and barleys. The taste is very well balanced too, first a nice full fruity flavour hits the palate which gentle turns into a more and more bitter aftertaste with a nice touch of pine and cactus. The taste is fruity with mango, peach, pine, honey, sweet barleys and malts and some sweets,but doesn’t seem to loose it in it’s sweetness, good bitter, hops, citrus, grass, yeast, hop flowers. This beer actually tastes very crisp. The aftertaste is a good bitter with a nice mix of hops, citrus, herbs, grass, nettle, light hints of fruit. Low carbonation, soft creamy mouthfeel, full body and a creamy/oily, sticky and well balanced texture.

4.04/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance is an opaque dark rust orange and poured a never ending head.

Smells of grapefruit and citrus in the nose and sweet malt on the finish

Sweet caramel and malt notes with a biter citrus hop finish.

Mouthfeel is thick and sticky just how I like my IPAs.

Overall a damn good brew and would most certainly sample again.

3.79/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle to a snifter.

Pours a magnificent orangeish-amber. Creamy foam head with decent retention. Not much lacing. A little murky.

Aroma is a strong balance of citrus, pine, and malts. Heavy on the grapefruit, and a little bit of orange.

Orange, grapefruit, and bitterness hit me first. A good deal of grassiness. Pine and caramel notes. A little less hoppy than I had imagined. Alcohol is masked incredibly well for 9%.

Medium-bodied, not too much carbonation. A little syrupy.

Overall, one of the more underwhelming DIPAs I've had. Not bad, at all, but definitely wouldn't be my first recommendation.
