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.
