Another beer i've been looking forward to for a while.

Pours a very pleasant deep amber/copper color. I don't usually put much stock in the appearance of beer unless something is obviously wrong, but this one really stood out to me. Light head with minimal lacing. Looks just wonderful in the tulip glass.

Smell is hop forward but with a sense of sweetness behind it. I've read others saying they get a lot of citrus here, but i'm getting only a small amount. Still pleasant.

Taste is hoppy on the front end, but not overly so (i wouldn't mistake this for a DIPA). It finishes very smooth/sweet, which, i suppose is why the 97ibus are not that overwhelming. The longer you drink it the more the sweet/malty elements come through, never really with any indication of alcohol.

Mouthfeel is pleasant, smooth. No harshness to it like i've started to grown accustomed to in some of the bigger beers. This in turn makes the drinkability relatively high, yet for all the smoothness and well blended elements I don't find this as "easy" to drink as I was hoping. I feel the same way about brown shugga (though granted that's a higher abv and also not as well put together), so perhaps it has something to do with the sweetness.

In total this is a nice change of pace from some of the big beers i've been drinking of late. Due to the hop levels in this one, i see now why so many are so wanting to compare it to a DIPA, but it really is a different experience. A very interesting and, for me, different beer. At $10 a sixer, it's also nice to be able to get something from the top 100 that's affordable (though, of course, I can't get any more in NC, so perhaps that's a mute point).
