look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Murky orangey red with small wispy tan head. No lace. Low retention.

Smells of spicy hops. Some floral hop notes too and light malts.

I taste some light toasted malts, a touch of sweetness (not enough?!) and a chalky finish. Spicy and floral hops give off a very mild bitterness.

The body isn't bad. This is actually the eat aspect of this beer. The chalky, mineral water residue feel does hurt a bit.

Overall-- meh. They were out of the "double down DIPA," and this was suggested as a substitute... This wasn't terrible, but it really didn't impress me.
