If you're in the mood for hops Look no further! It's intense in flavor but yet it goes down smooth!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Hazy amber pour into a becher, a finger of white head dwindling down to a thin foamy layer rather quickly, leaving light lacing on the glass. Lots of malty sweetness in the aroma, unfortunately, soapy, with some citrus and pine hops in the background. More of that malty sweetness in the taste, giving way to a strong bitterness, notes of orange pith and pine resin, dry, bready, and somewhat bland malts making a reprise, ending with a sticky sweetness on the palate. This seems to be the curse of many a DIPA: using too much malts to get that ABV, without having enough balance in the recipe to keep the hops in command. The bottle said Feb. '14, so it's not like it was a freshness issue. Medium body, sticky mouthfeel and a bit rough overall. Not entirely bad, good for a homebrew kit, but not something I'd go for again.
