look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A - Crystal clear amber with a thin, but dense head (bar pour leaves little room for head...). Nice, sticky lacing.
S - A hoppy sonofagun, as expected. Super piney & resiny, with some citrus, wildflowers, and caramel malt for good measure.
T - More malty than anticipated, but hop-forward is still an understatement. Piney, resiny hops abound, with the citrus and caramel still playing a supporting role. A bit of biscuit in the back that I didn't notice in the nose. Solid bitterness, but not overpowering.
M - Medium-full body. Nice, fine carbonation. Smooth & slick.
D - Good balance keeps it high for a DIPA. I wish this stuff turned up more often.
A very solid DIPA. Doesn't really stand out from the pack, but is in the upper echelon of the standards. Try it if you come across it.
Serving type: on-tap
