4.53/5 rDev +13%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a growler a rich golden color with a nice, somewhat fluffy, head that left good amounts of lace as it disappeared. Immediate intense hoppy aroma hits your nose. The taste is very hoppy, but still delicate with a full body mouthfeel. I also taste somewhat toasted hints. Overall, awesome beer and extremely drinnkable
Serving type: growler

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Fat Heads pint glass.
A: Hazy gold, with moderate visible carbonation and a half-finger of white head with average retention.
S: Bright citrus hops, biscuit malts, and some resinous hops in the background. This isn't one of those DIPAs that hits your nose while you're pouring it, but a nice aroma nevertheless.
T: Citrus (orange, less grapefruit) hops, with some tropical fruit and pine flavors as well; chewy biscuit malts with a touch of caramel sweetness, some hints of oxidation unfortunately. Some melon and pineapple hop character shows up as it warms a bit. Citrus rind bitterness in the hang.
M: Medium-bodied, with a creamier mouthfeel than expected but still reasonably well-carbonated. The alcohol presence is well-hidden in the flavor, though I get a bit of warmth that lets you know it's there.
O: I found this quite drinkable for a DIPA, though the ABV rather toes the line between IPA and the double form. Citrus hops dominate the sizeable malt backbone. Not the best DIPA out there, but a good one in a convenient 12-oz. bottle.

12 oz bottle, "BDAU82014" - I assume a best buy date?
pours a hazy orange golden color, with bright white head. good retention and lacing. hop aroma is a bit on the citrus and floral side. taste is nicely balanced, with some slightly sweet malt taste to hold up the hop flavor. medium body, softer carbonation.
