4.5/5 rDev -3.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
A - hazy, glowing orange, thick off-white head, pretty much leaves a sheet of lacing behind
S - sweet mango, tropical, bitter grapefruit, light pine, very nice nose, though not huge, quite sweet-ish, though not from malt
T - tight bitter pine, great interplay with sweet malt and tropical hop notes, awesome hop flavour from start to finish and well into the aftertaste
M - very creamy and smooth, despite the light body, alcohol is certainly present, very dry finish, lip-smacking
D - believe the hype, and excellent DIPA, insane drinkability despite the alcohol
It has been a while since I have had a fresh, quality IPA/DIPA. It is so easy to throw hops into a beer, but crafting an excellent IPA is a completely different thing. Delicious.
