3.58/5  rDev +2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Recommended by the staff at Arkavalley liquors.

Pre-tasting notes: Despite the label, this is not a DIPA; however I will grade it against a DIPA standard.

A: Pretty goldenrod color with a touch of orange; slightly opaque. Small head (probably because of the pour). Nice lacing. It looks slightly thin.

S: A mixture of alcohol, malt, and an assertively subtle citrus hop aroma.

T: A very balanced beer. None of the alcohol sting that the nose leads one to expect, however the alcohol has a pleasant warming quality. The hop flavor is delicate (still assertive though), comes later, and lingers throughout an overall dry finish. This beer is not too bitter. While enjoyable, this does not taste like a DIPA.
Side note: The more I drink of this, the more hop content i notice; however the above still stands.

M: Absolutely medium, Nicely carbonated. It's nice.

D: This is very drinkable. I'm on number three right now. The only problem is that DIPAs shouldn't be this easy to drink.

Final Notes: I enjoyed this beer. I'd give it a definite 7/10. However, this is NOT a DIPA. Would I buy another sixer? Not when the Torpedo extra IPA or Avery's IPA are cheaper. However, I still like this beer and continue to look forward to Diamond Bear's releases.

3.79/5  rDev +8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a golden orange with a thin whitish head that fades quickly, leaving some lacing on the glass.

Smell: Citrus fruits at the forefront with some malty sweetness, followed by resiny hops and earthy notes.

Taste: More of the aroma with malty sweetness overpowering any apparent bitterness. Slight bitter character but smooth drinking overall.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with solid carbonation and easy drinking at 8.5%. Not overly bitter due to the abundance of malt to balance out the hops.

Overall: A solid DIPA here that is definitely worth a try. I've had many better beers of the style but this is good nonetheless.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.25

12oz Bottle from the brewery. Pours a bright copper body, ample white cap, looks promising compared to other DB fare. Smells weakly of musty cat pee, apricots, pineapple; this does not have the nose a IIPA should have. Taste is similar, muted hop notes of dried mango, musty tea leaves, the malt body comes through as a pleasant and light caramel and toffee. Mouthfeel is creamy with prickly carbonation. This is what I would call a regular IPA in the NW, and one past it's shelf life at that (even though it was bought fresh from the brewery). Use *fresh* whole hops in your late boil and dry hop additions!!!!
