look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: clear; copper colored; 1 finger white head that receded slowly to a thin cap; nice lacing;

S: caramel malt is predominant with dank pine behind it;

T: dank pine for a split second, then caramel malt; alcohol is present in finish with moderate bitterness;

M: medium bodied; moderate bitterness;

O: I was missing the hops that I so desperately wanted to taste; not a bad beer, but too malty;

3.76/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: deep amber ale, not quite clear; pint center-pour produces as much tan foam as you want. Lacing left down the glass.

S: pine and resin and caramel; some herbal, husky, grassiness

T: mellow up front with smooth malts and syrupy sweets; subsides quickly as bitterness, sweet nut, and then bitterness again wash over the tongue; some herbal and spice-like suggestions, finishes with a more savory character

M: medium-bodied and warming, some tingle as it slides across the palate; dull, muted, woodsy-bitterness

O: depending on your preferences with DIPAs, this is probably either a good one-timer or something that fills a particular (beer) niche for you and you really dig. I certainly enjoyed it, but I tend to lean toward and enjoy paler DIPAs than this.
