Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint glass.

A: Slightly hazy, light orange-amber color with over one finger of persistent off-white foam head. Moderate lacing remains and a fairly continuous band of bubbles clings to the submerged surface of the glass.

S: Resinous hops are redolent with pine and fruity orange citrus. Dankness as well as ambiguous malt heaviness hangs on every whiff. No alcohol is detected.

T: Begins very off-dry, with doughy pale malt and hops aromatics that exhibit very focused herbal mint and spice. Acidity is moderate into the middle where the prominent hops qualities from the smell make a half-hearted attempt to break through on the palate. Clean, pure bitterness defines the drying finish, just slightly affected by greenness. Alcohol emerges from the midpoint onward as the beer warms.

M: Medium viscosity, acidic and very resinous on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: Although this DIPA finished under 10% abv, the overwhelming hops profile makes it seem like an even bigger beer than it is. The IBU needle at first seems pegged in a way that overwhelms the ability to taste discrete qualities. The result is a bloated hops signal that makes this beer seem like a bit of a mess at times.

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

22 oz. bottle poured into a goblet.

Appearance - Deep copper. Clear ripply body. Big white head. Lots of surface foam and lace.

Smell - Musty pine and grapefruit hop. Slightly nutty malt. Deep caramel.

Taste - Juicy grapefruit. It's the most prominent hop flavor. Strong malt character. Deep caramel. Some sweetness. Not a lot of bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Heavy malt character. Slick and medium heavy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - I felt this was too heavy at first, but this gets much better as I drink it. Super malty but it's got a great flavor.
