4.2/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottle poured into a tulip.

A-Pours a deep amber with a finger of off white head that quickly fades leaving a thin rim of foam with visible lacing.

S-Smells of tropical citrus, mangoes, grapefruit, pineapple and lemon. Light on hops with a background of sweet malt and floral bouqet.

T-Sweet citrus and hops dominate the palate with a bit of sweet caramel malt roast. Slight alcohol taste.

M-Medium body with moderate to mild carbonation. It has an almost slick oil feel that coats the tongue.

O-Really good DIPA that strikes a unique balance of citrus tang, sweet malt and bitter hops. Worth a try, but if you're looking for really dank hoppy bitterness go elsewhere.
