3.6/5 rDev -22.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a Bells tulip. Driven back from Denver in a cooler. Bottled 9/10/12
Pours a light golden/honey body with a pure white head. Head mostly fades to leave nice white lacing.
Aroma is sweet honey, slight spicy hop kick, light fruity pine. A little weak for a DIPA but pleasant
Flavor is significantly lighter than I expected. Floral and citrus flavor is short lived. Lingering bitterness is low and somewhat sneaks up.
Mouthfeel is light but pleasant, with some surprising alcohol heat.
Overall not one of my most favorite DIPAs, as a strong IPA it would have too much heat and still be lacking a complexity of flavor.
