look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours clear golden color with a tall white head. Typical low carbonation from my Whole Foods, but head still lasted awhile and left some lacing.

S - Hop dominated with some citrus, pine, and flowers.

T - The hops are upfront and a bit strange. The floral hops really come through along with a good bit of malt sweetness. Gives it a strange flavor profile, not bad, but not great.

M - A little heavy and coating, the alcohol helps but I think a bit drier would be nice.

O - Glad I got it, but not my favorite IIPA.

Pours a hazy orange-ish color with a white head. In the aroma, a small hop, yet very mellow. In the taste, small pine hops and a citrus hop end, and quite malty all the way through. A small hop bite and a medium to bigger bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry pine like aftertaste. A nice hop, a bit malty, hides the alcohol, and average beer.

Finger of head and nice light slightly foggy look laces well
Subtle hop and floral scent with alcohol present
Good job by Brooklyn in getting style just a hair to much alcohol tasted to be top tier!
Plenty of others in dipa and ipa category that would drink before this again

Served in a Brooklyn Brewery snifter at the Beer Bistro, Chicago, IL

A: Thick three finger bright white head that takes several minutes to fully dissipate leaving beautiful lacing. Deep golden color with slight amber hues

S: Strong floral and citrus aromas dominate with a very. very slight note of pine here and there.

T: Opens with a flood of citrus hops, orange and lemon, grapefuit, transitions into sweetness, malt, orange, and banana notes. Finishes with continued sweet citrus, light orange juice, a very subtle touch of pine, and a bit of alcohol.

M: Well-carbonated, very noticable malt backbone, fairly hefty body for a DIPA.

O: One of the fruitiest, sweetest DIPA's I've had. In fact it was a bit too fruity and sweet for me. The smell and opening of the beer was fantastic, however I kept waiting for some hop bitterness to balance out the sweet which never came. A solid DIPA that fans of sweeter, fruiter beers will love.
