This isn't a great beer, but it is good. Looks as it should. Yellow/gold/red amber and sufficiently cloudy. Tannish head with some firmness.
Largely hop aroma with a fullness and body and some firmness. This one isn't that distinct, but of a general hop aroma.
Big enough and firm mouthfeel. Well rounded hop flavors start to finish with a flavorful and enjoyable lingering bitterness.
Nothing distinct, but solid and enjoyable.

3.91/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Dark amber orange in appearance and pours a pretty off white head that dissipates quickly.

Smells like a hop bomb! I'm enticed! Strong hops on the nose, slight hint of lemon peel, and barely a dash of malt for no real attempt at balance.

Taste is bitter and straight hops all the way, not bad though, slight citrus to note as well.

Mouthfeel is crisp and bitter.

Overall a very tasty DIPA and the brewery is within driving distance so that ain't bad.
