4.13/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I had this brew on tap at my now-usual spot, and I enjoyed it enough to take a growler home with me.

Poured into a pint glass, the look is that of a slightly deeper amber. The head is an interesting egg shell color, but with a little more yellow than your average egg shell. The head dies down quickly to a film on the beer's surface, and provides sporadic lacing here and there.

Admittedly, the smell didn't strike me as all that interesting. Sweet and sticky hops, muted citrus, and a good malt backbone.

The taste actually surprised me quite a bit. The first few sips were glorious, very spicy, bitter, with a throat-warming sweet malty aftertaste. Grapefruit is present, I suppose, and the alcohol is nicely covered up by the flavor. It mellows out a bit as your taste buds adjust, but still, I really enjoy the taste. There's just something about the spiciness that I can't put my finger on...

The mouthfeel is a tad watery, but I am glad that this beer doesn't turn into a mouthfull of foam. Good carbonation, but not over the top. As some people have mentioned, a slightly thicker feel might be nice.

But hey, it's extremely, dangerously drinkable, considering its ABV, and I will very much enjoy cuddling up with a growler full of this brew.

Serving type: on-tap

3.79/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - Pours a hazy deep orange with a one-finger foamy white head. Heavy lacing.

S - Mix of malts, grassy hops, and a touch alcohol.

T - Sweet malts are right upfront with floral hops finish out the flavors. Finish has a slight hop bitterness. Light alcohol presence in the finish.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Smooth creamy mouthfeel.

O - This is a decent malt forward DIPA. Definetly drinkable.
