3.91/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
A - Not much head to this just a 1/4 inch that settles to a mild lace ring. It's ok.
S - Smell is good for a DIPA not too hoppy mostly malts so it might be old. Smells actually nice.
T - Taste is great balanced taste of citrus and herbal hops, crystal malts and crackers about. Super easy to drink but not great.
M - Light to medium is this 8%
Overall it is good but I found it too lacking. It was 8.99 for the bottle its for sure not worth another purchase but it is one of the smoothest DIPA's I drank. Would love to try this fresh.

3.88/5 rDev -4.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Pours a clear amber color capped by a couple of inches of foam; very nice retention and a pretty god job in the lacing department, too
Smell: Powerful wet hop aromatics; rather piney with both melon and fusel alcohol underneath
Taste: A dose of caramel on the front end is massacred by the piney hops with the 84.3 IBUs blasting the taste buds at mid-palate; the bitterness remains intense, after the swallow, though there is a melon tone that sneaks in underneath; the sweetness from the malts builds somewhat into the finish; rather boozy aftertaste
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; warmth in the gullet
Overall: Not sure whether this is still oak-aged - neither the bottle nor the website mentions it and if it is, the treatment is very subtle; the website description of the beer seems out of date, too, as it doesn't mention the use of local hops grown on an Illinois farm and harvested by the brewery; all that aside, the beer is a bit too boozy and lacks some balance to be among the best in the style
