look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Hazy wheat hue deplete of DIPA typical lacing. Bottles 2/2012

Pine needle with some malt sweetness. Bright floral hop. No generalized fruity ester except miniscule notes of pineapple and apricot as I have to really dig it out.

Bold brew-very hop forward 86 IBU. Not much fruit except for grapefruit pith-minimal malt sweetness due to hop domination. Like licking the floor of a pine forest, resinous woody pinesap and earth. I do enjoy this style.

Mouthfeel is creamy and thick sticky sweet. Not very mysterious but just a straight forward DIPA. No juicy fruits here. This will git ya going though. Good great hoppy brew even after one year.
