look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

A: Pours a dark amber body with a decent size head that's bubbly and long lasting.

S: A faint aroma of some yeast, sweet malts, & citrus hops. Doesn't smell like a DIPA.

T: Faint grapefruit hops on the palate followed by sweet caramel malts, finishes dry. Kind of a weak flavor for the style and nothing too complex. Would never have guess this to be a DIPA.

M: Thin mouthfeel, light-medium body, decent carbonation.

O: Not a good example of the style. Hops are way too weak in the nose and taste, and the mouthfeel is too thin. This is great for those who don't like hoppy beers, but then why get a DIPA?

A - Pours a fairly bright hazy amber-brownish color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down to a ring around the glass leaving spots of lace behind.

S - Aroma is equal parts citrus hops and sweet caramel malts. Some yeast in the background. Kind of mild.

T - Starts off with some citrus hops (grapefruit flavor) and some light caramel malts. Through the middle some more hop flavor with some bitterness comes through. The finish is a mix of some pale malts and some citrus hops that lingers a bit. A bit subdued.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels a touch watery. Finish is nice and dry and crisp.

D - Very drinkable. Could use a bit more flavor and some more hops for a DIPA. The flavors that are there are nicely balanced and the dry finish feels nice.

A: Poured on tap into an Imperial pint glass. Nice 2 finger head, hazy reddish brown, minimal lacing.

S: Creamy butter notes up front with a barley, hop, and nut finish.

T: A dry oaty-nuttiness surrounds the flavor. The flavor is more aligned with an English IPA than an Ameican Imperial IPA, so adjust you tastebuds accordingly. Banana up front, crushed barley and English hops in the middle with a dry, earthy finish.

M: The driness cuts the typical cream feels of this brewery quite nicely. It's nicely balanced with a slightly creamy finish that disappears on the swallow.

O: Tasty, with a bit more flavor than the standard DB IPA. A welcome experiment that is nicely drinkable if you like driness.

The beer pours a dark gold/amber color with a thick frothy offwhite head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is average. It has a nice pale malt scent along with a ton of yeast esters. I'm not getting much in the way of hop aroma. It smells like a typical APA. The taste is decent. It has a mildly bitter hop taste with more of a watery pale malt and yeast flavor. It doesn't seem like a 7% beer at all. The mouthfeel is decent. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a very drinkable beer, but it's a lame attempt at a DIPA.
