Notes/Commercial Description:
Nugget and Apollo hops added in the brew kettle provide a green, floral aroma and citrus hop base, while the later addition of Amarillo, Citra, and Centennial hops add notes of spicy grapefruit and orange - complimenting the resilient malt profile.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

I do not know why, but I am really excited to try this one

Pours a deep amber with a finger of off white head, clear, nice lacing

Smell is sweet malt, pine, citrus, herbal hop, sweet oranges, juicy tropical vibe

Taste is citrus grapefruit, oranges, sweet bready malt, orange juice sweetness, tropical fruit - Pineapple mostly, herbal hop bitterness, finishes with a nice bitter grapefruit.

Mouthfeel is medium full, oily resin from the hop, finishes pretty dry

Wow, not anywhere as sweet everyone has mentioned.

A welcome DIPA to the WI market, I here this is gonna be year round! At 7.79 a 4 pack I will always have it on hand, there are better out there and there are certainly way worse!

Give it a shot, just got released so you know it is fresh!
