I like my DIPAs to begin hoppy, like a regular IPA, and then let the malts take over and round off the taste so that each sip finishes with a rich, syrupy malt taste. Instead this beer drinks the opposite - it begins malty, but hops soon take over and finish. The hops are not offensively bitter, which I appreciate this style for: strong bitter nose, warm grapefruit mouthfeel, and a vaporous finish rather than a dry, hoppy one. I enjoyed the beer, but this feels somewhere between an IPA and a DIPA.

Nothing special but the color is awesome.Smells like an IPA bitter and piny.Taste is a basic blend of hops and possible malt and licorice but Im not sure.Could be better if it was a bit sweeter.Again nothing special and most likely will not purchase again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A pretty dark amber appearance in the glass. Starts with a Thin, dissipating head, and with unremarkable lacing. Hops on the nose. Piney, peppery, and spicy with a bitter finish. A touch of sweet malt. A solid but forgettable brew. Worth a try but will probably not revisit.
