look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

best before 15 aug 2012

poured a really nice clear copper/amber color. inch of off-white head. a thin ring is left about half way through.

smell had nice hops, malt, bitter aromas.

taste was a bit hoppy, very malty, well balanced in terms of alcohol. overall it was good but i don't feel like it captured a dipa that well.
