3.75/5  rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - Pours a dark gold/brown color with a nice thick tan head.

S - Intense piney hops and sweet smelling malt.

T - Wow, intensely hoppy. Nicely balanced by a sweet malty aftertaste. A bit citrusy in the aftertaste as well.

M - This one feels thick, but I have to say seems a bit overcarbonated. Feels sticky and sweet which is appropriate for the style.

D - I never drink more than a few of these. The high abv and intensely bitter taste make me keep it to two or three at the most.

Overall, a pretty good DIPA. The only reason I buy it over 90 minute, however, its because I get six beers instead of four.
