Revisited this due to a recent post here on BA about sixpoint's tweaking resin, so adjusted my old rating if 4.38 rating. Love this beer. Biggest improvement (based on my previous scores) is the smell, thought it was muted before. Love everything about this beer. If I lived in Portland, Or (instead of 3.5 hours away in Washington), this would be a staple in my beer fridge.

On a side note, it was good to be impressed vs disappointed like I was last night with a bottle of lagunitas sucks (Julian date 145, so that may be reason for not being what I remembered it).

Serving: 12oz can into snifter
Served: 27 March 2015

Appearance: Pours a magnificent crystal clear deep copper color, with a few streams of carbonation coming up from the bottom of the glass. Small white head that dies down pretty quick to just a sheen of bubbles over the top. Little to no lacing.

Smell: All hops in the nose- lemongrass, cajeput, a bit of lemony pine, and other strong citrus-driven notes.

Taste: Nice assertive hoppiness and a really solid malt backbone- not cloying or sweet at all, but something that carries the hops enough without overpowering the palate, or letting the hops dominate too heavily. I hesitate to use the word 'balanced' with a DIPA, but this one is about as close as I've gotten to really understanding that term. Little to no alcohol coming through, despite the 9.1% ABV.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation is good at first, but I found it burned off pretty quick. Despite this, the beer still felt full-bodied and substantial throughout.

Overall: A marvelous DIPA, and one that seems a bit underrated. Exceedingly drinkable for its ABV- dangerously so. This one goes down so easy I could have easily put away a few more without noticing.

Grapefruit upfront. Oiley, some pine. Alcohol well hidden. This is a great beer. Will have to taste side by with Ninja v Unicorn.
