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

A: Poured from the growler into a Duvel tulip. Body is golden-honey in color with no real head.

S: Hoppy (citrusy) and vibrant. Not terribly strong in the nose, but it has a solid citrus smell (grapefruit, lemon and even orange peel) that's very nice.

T: Mild bready/cookie dough malt underneath the hops, which dominate: apricot and citrus, with a touch of tropical fruit. The hop profile makes it seem a bit lighter than your typical DIPA (the relatively low ABV of 8% probably helps as well). Finishes with a touch of spice that's more noticed as it warms.

M: Medium in heft, a tad bit flat.

O: Good stuff. A relatively easy-drinking DIPA that's nice and bright. Call it a "summer DIPA."

Half pour at Milltown.

Pour is what id expect from a DIPA. light orange body with no head. I wanted a bit more, but this will do. It doesnt smell like much. good amount of grapefruit and orange, but theres some medicinal, earthy, and piney hops. They went for balance in the hops, and they got it.

The taste goes the same way. Very balanced hop profile, with some graefruit, orange, and lemon; a bit of pine; and just a hint of this medicinal earthy thing. I like how the balance of the hops makes it more drinkable.
