4.74/5  rDev +17.9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a snifter from a bottle.

A: This beer appears a nice deep orange, slightly cloudy as well. The head is an off white and started out as approximately a finger's width. The head disappates fairly quickly and a nice lacing remains.

S: The smell is very hoppy upfront. Definitely fits the DIPA smell profile. The hops seem very cirtusy, not too much pine happening.

T: Very bitter around the tongue and quite hoppy! The hoppiness lingers around the middle to back of the tongue after each sip. Definitely quite the tasty DIPA.

M: The mouthfeel with this one is solid, not the smoothest mouthfeel, however. The bitterness from the hops nip at the tongue slightly when sipping.

Overal, this beer is very good! Very hoppy and true to the DIPA style. I'd highly recommend this beer to anyone who's a fan of DIPAs.
