4.29/5 rDev +1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
A: Poured from the bottle into a Duvel tulip. Body is hazy golden-orange, with only a hint of whitish head on top. Still some splotches of lace, however, notwithstanding the headless body.
S: Real nice nose - grapefruit and white grapefruit peel or pith, plus tropical fruits and a touch of garlic.
T: Follows the nose, but starts out with a modestly bready foundation before the hops take charge. Again, grapefruit, white grapefruit and garlic/onion are all noted. The 9% ABV, however, is noticed only as a warming sensation in the belly. It is well-masked in the taste. Finishes with a palate-coating grapefruity bitterness that lingers well into the aftertaste.
M: Body is medium-to-heavy in heft. Carbonation is modest and fine-prickled.
O: A nice DIPA that drinks lighter than that 9% ABV.

4.04/5 rDev -4.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured into a standard pint glass: color is gold/copper, opaque, dense looking, head is bright white, large bubbles, dissipates to a ring and spots with some lacing on the glass.
Smell is a big hop blast: mostly citrus, grapefruit prominent, some lighter earthy and pine notes; malt is light, maybe some toast and pale malt.
Taste is big hop forward flavor, more muddled mix of citrus, earth, pine notes; hops are bitter and floral concurrently, with some pleasant tasting as it warms; malt is background, some sweetness, some toast and biscuit. Hop/malt flavor hides stronger abv.
Mouthfeel is pretty balanced for this ale, good bitterness and malt sweetness; abv is not detracting.
Overall, a very solid dipa, nice abundant aroma, good flavor, good strength and good mouthfeel.
