A - Pours a clear amber with a one-finger creamy head. Very light lacing.

S - Heavy aroma of grapefruit and pine.

T - Follows the aroma with lots of grapefruit and resinous hops. There is just enough caramel sweetness to balance the bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbnation. Mouthfeel is sticky with a dry finish.

O - A nice very hop forward DIPA. Very easy drinking.

3.64/5  rDev -7.1%

Features a clover honey colored body and a thick, sticky, white head. Orange and lemon hop aroma with a touch of malt sweetness in the nose. Hop bitterness dominates the taste; some citrus flavors; very mild malt flavor. Medium-heavy body; big carbonation feel; very dry finish.

Hop bitterness rules this DIPA. The intensity is rather overpowering and gives the beer an almost one-dimensional quality. Malt and grain character is greatly lacking in presence. Overall, the beer lacks balance and refinement but still quite drinkable if you're a glutton for bitterness.
